Aaron Sorkin calls Steve Jobs' daughter 'heroine' of upcoming biopic

Though Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic still hasn’t found its Jobs, the screenwriter has offered up a few more details about the film, as well as why finding someone to fill the role has been such a challenge.

In an interview with The Independent, Sorkin opened up about how Jobs’ daughter Lisa became a major facet of his writing process. Lisa, whom Jobs initially denied paternity of but later reconnected with when she was in her teens, spoke to Sorkin. These conversations were a coup for the writer, as Lisa did not speak to Walter Isaacson for the biography on which the film is based. READ FULL STORY

David Fincher and Sony at odds over Steve Jobs biopic

The all-star creative team behind The Social Network that was planning to reunite for a Steve Jobs bio might have to reboot.

Tribeca Film Festival: Justin Long sweet-talks Evan Rachel Wood in 'A Case of You' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Justin Long grew up watching and loving Woody Allen movies, so it’s no surprise that he absorbed the line from 1989’s Crimes and Misdemeanors, that “Comedy is tragedy, plus time.” When Long and Keir O’Donnell (Wedding Crashers) were simultaneously recovering from painful romantic breakups several years ago, they channeled their pain into the romantic-comedy script that became A Case of You, which premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival this Sunday.

Long stars as Sam, a shy New York writer who develops a crush on Birdie (Evan Rachel Wood), the quirky barista at his local coffee stop. When his initial attempts to get her attention fail, he invents an Internet profile for a much cooler version of himself that he manipulates to her likes and preferences. To keep her attention, however, he might actually have to eventually do and be all the things his online alter ego promises.

In an exclusive meet-cute scene from the movie, Sam finally gets up the nerve to speak to Birdie at the coffee shop. “He’s been a regular customer there and sort of watched her from afar,” says Long. “You get the idea that he’s somehow infatuated with her but this is the first time that they’re really having a moment together where she’s aware of him participating.”

They giggle over some doodles and the bond is sealed when a third party interrupts, making them feel like co-conspirators in their own inside joke. “I think the most important thing about a romantic-comedy is that you believe they’d find similar things funny,” says Long. “I think that’s true in relationships too. I don’t think people give that enough credit, how common your sense of humors link up.”

Watch the sweet scene below, and then read a Q&A with Long, who discusses his screenwriting debut and his role in the Funny or Die biopic, iSteve. READ FULL STORY

Ashton Kutcher tweets mindbending image of himself with Steve Jobs -- PHOTO

Ready to have your mind blown? Check out this half Ashton Kutcher/half Steve Jobs image that Kutcher just uploaded to his Twitter, along with the message, “Thank you Sundance for your support of Jobs.”

Kutcher portrays the tech giant in the film jOBS, which premiered at Sundance last week and will be released in theaters April 19. EW’s Owen Gleiberman says of the film: “Watching jOBS, with its basic warts-and-all accuracy and unsweetened, killer-shrewd performance by Ashton Kutcher (who was obviously cast because he looks like Jobs, but who bites into the role with his incisors), I was surprised, and often riveted, by what a starkly honest portrait it is.”

Sundance: Ashton Kutcher gets his angry geek on in 'jOBS,' a fascinating Steve Jobs biopic that leaves you wanting more. Plus, James Franco's 'Interior. Leather Bar.

Computer culture speeds everything up — makes it more instant, more immediate, maybe more disposable — and so it makes sense, in a way, that the biopics of the computer revolution are coming out so quickly, when the revolution is barely into its second act. (Most of the revered musical legends of the ’60s and ’70s are still waiting for their movie bios.) The Social Network was released just a few years after the launch of Facebook, but it was cuttingly incisive, brilliant, timeless. And now, only a little more than a year after Steve Jobs’ death, the time feels right for jOBS, which premiered last night at Sundance, and which tells the story of the Apple co-founder and black-turtlenecked guru of the technocratic age.

Sundance 2013: Ashton Kutcher brought his 'short temper to work' to play Steve Jobs

When Steve Jobs was in charge of Apple, the launch of a new electronic gizmo was a major media event, cloaked in secrecy and elaborate stagecraft to maximize anticipation and impact. It’s a technique that the team behind jOBS has taken to heart based on Friday night’s red-carpet movie premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. A grand unveiling — featuring Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad, who plays Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak — finally put the film’s operating system on display after months of speculation.

There had been one slight hiccup: Yesterday, Open Road had released a 62-second video clip from the movie, providing the first extensive look at the actors resembling Jobs and Wozniak in the 1970s. Which was fine until Wozniak publicly called the scene “totally wrong.” (It’s worth noting that Wozniak is consulting on a rival Jobs biopic with Aaron Sorkin.) READ FULL STORY

'jOBS' filmmakers respond to Steve Wozniak's complaints that first clip was inaccurate -- EXCLUSIVE

Well, that didn’t take long: Just a few hours after EW posted the first clip from jOBS — a Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher as the tech visionary and Josh Gad as his partner Steve Wozniak — Wozniak himself took to Gizmodo’s comment boards to deride the film as inaccurate. “Not close,” he wrote. “We never had such interaction and roles…I’m not even sure what it’s getting at…personalities are very wrong although mine is closer.”

Later, Wozniak would expand on his comment in two emails to Gizmodo, calling the scene “totally wrong.” He objected to the film’s styling — “I never looked like a professional” — as well as the way the clip seemed to credit Jobs with ideas Wozniak claims as his own: “The ideas of computers affecting society did not come from Jobs. They inspired me.” He concluded by poking fun at the Apple guru’s mercenary nature — “By the way, the Apple I was the 5th time I designed something just for fun that Steve found a way to turn into money.”

When asked for comment, jOBS publicist Amanda Lundberg responded with the following statement:
