    Yeah, it makes you wonder why Hollywood and this indie group even bothered. Except for reason #8 (watch money roll in) of course.

    4. Announce said movie details on April Fools, just to show how seriously the project is being taken.

    5. Give movie a gay, work-in-progress movie title like 'Get Inspired!'.

    6. Rush to complete movie so that it can be released at the end of the year when all the 'real' movies are released.

    7. Add a monkey to the script.

    8. Sit back, relax, and watch the money roll in.

    A three or six-part TV miniseries should provide enough glimpse into Steve Jobs life. Noah Wyle did an excellent Steve. My only quibble with that version was the surface treatment of details of the man's life and felt a little rushed. This needs to be more than just another run-of-the-mill documentary/mockumentary.

    Reality check: However, even if they botch this up, it should still make the bean counters happy.

    Kutcher doesn't have the acting chops -- at least I haven't seen any that could carry a movie. I just can't see Steve Jobs portrayed as a one-off Kelso.

    The Sony picture based on Isaacson's book? No chance. Isaacson can do a great historical book, but his book on Jobs was rushed and nowhere near the quality. Rush and quality are incompatible. A quality book on Jobs is a five to ten year project; and a movie screen play must come after.

    I am certain there have been at least a couple Bollywood movies inspired by Jobs already. LOL

    Yes, but one can dream.
