Producer reveals upcoming Steve Jobs movie plans

Ashton Kutcher is 'perfect for our film' says producer Mark Hulme

By Ashleigh Allsopp, Macworld U.K. |  Business, entertainment, Steve Jobs

The first reason, says the report, is that the movie will be Hulme's first venture into the film industry. He is the founder of Five Star Institute, a publishing, marketing, communications, and conference production company, which specialises in mortgages.

Second, Cult of Mac thinks that the period of 1971-2000 will make the film too similar to the Pirates of Silicon Valley, a 1999 film also about the life of Steve Jobs.

Third, the film has been written by Matt Whitely, and is his first screenplay. The director, Joshua Michael Stern is also not well known. His most famous movie, Swing Vote, which starred Kevin Costner, was a box office flop. And his 2005 film, Neverwas, skipped cinemas altogether and went straight to DVD.

Fourth, the working title, Jobs: Get Inspired, is not very inspiring at all.

Finally, Cult of Mac points out that the film probably won't we critical of Jobs, and will be produced to commemorate his life instead.

We're holding off judgement until the film's release later in the year.
