Ashton Kutcher, who got his break on "That '70s Show," will go back to the 1970s to play tech visionary Steve Jobs in an indie film about Jobs' early life and the founding of Apple.
Production on the film, "Jobs," is scheduled to begin in May while Kutcher is on hiatus from his CBS series "Two and a Half Men," reports Variety.
It will be directed by Joshua Michael Stern ("Swing Vote") and "will chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple."
