WASHINGTON – Ashton Kutcher will play late Apple mogul Steve Jobs in an indie film scheduled to start production in May.

Variety reports “Jobs” will tell the story of Jobs’ life from “wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple.” Production will take place while Kutcher is on a break from the CBS series “Two and a Half Men.”

Sony Pictures, meanwhile, is developing a film on Steve Jobs based on the recent biography by Walter Isaacson, Variety says.
