David Fincher Demands Christian Bale To Be His Steve Jobs
A few weeks back, word arose that David Fincher was circling Sony's Steve Job's biopic. Now it seems a script penned by Aaron Sorkin isn't enough of an incentive to sign on. Fincher is demanding Christian Bale for the lead role, or else he's walking.

This Week In Home Entertainment: Red 2, Breaking Bad And More
The Canyons has a coloring and a synth-oriented soundtrack that makes it stand out, and its story, while harrowing and simultaneously a little goofy, does feature Lohan proving she can act. This may not be the movie that turns things around for LiLo, but it may be the movie that reminds you of why she was an “it girl” in the first place.

Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Calls Out Ashton Kutcher
Specifically, he said, “I thought the acting throughout was good. I was attentive and entertained but not greatly enough to recommend the movie. I suspect a lot of what was wrong with the film came from Ashton’s own image of Jobs.”

Jobs Giveaway: Win A T-Shirt, Soundtrack, And Poster Signed By Ashton Kutcher
Following Jobs from his years doing drugs and making trouble at Reed College to his ouster from Apple and return to the company in 1996, it's a sweeping story about the years before Jobs exploded back into the tech world with the invention of the iPod and later the iPhone. It's a story about a tech genius, but also a look at the personal life of a man who couldn't always treat the people in his life as well as he treated his own ideas

Ashton Kutcher's Steve Jobs Biopic Delayed Indefinitely
The biopic has generated a decent amount of press thanks to Stern’s decision to cast Two and a Half Men co-star Ashton Kutcher as the tech pioneer. At least the trade is saying that the delay is being implemented as a means of better marketing the film instead of putting the biopic under the knife of a cut-happy editor, because the movie – at this moment – is finished.

jOBS Review: Ashton Kutcher Does Well, But The Movie Fails To Think Different
For the last decade of his life the public image of Steve Jobs was the same every year: a man standing in front of a large crowd, showing them some incredible piece of technology, and reveling in the massive applause. Ideally in a biopic you're going to see something more, but jOBS starts off with that scene exactly

Watch Ashton Kutcher As Steve Jobs In First JOBS Clip
This clip that shows Jobs (Kutcher) attempting to convince Wozniak (Josh Gad) that the operating system he's building as a hobby could be fine-tuned to be sold commercially. Incredulous, the 1970s Wozniak—with period appropriate bad hair—declares, "Nobody wants to buy a computer!" Of course Jobs knows better.

Ahna O'Reilly Cast As Female Lead In Steve Jobs Biopic
Back in 1999 TNT aired a made-for-TV movie called Pirates of Silicon Valley, which told the story of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates' ascension to becoming the tech-icons we now know them to be. Part of Jobs' side of the story included his relationship with his high school girlfriend and the birth of his first child Lisa in 1978. This part of Jobs' life will apparently be explored to some extent in the upcoming biopic Jobs, as the role of Chris-Ann Brennan has been cast.

Book Of Mormon's Josh Gad In Talks To Join Ashton Kutcher In Steve Jobs Biopic
Sure, Kutcher's better known for his comedic work than he is for dramas, but he does bear some resemblance to Jobs in his younger years, and producer Mark Hulme expressed optimism that Kutcher has what it takes to carry the "psychological complexity" of the role. In another interesting casting development for the film, it looks like Jobs may have found its Woz, and once again, they're going with someone better known for their comedy work than for drama.
