The Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher is on its way to the big screen. With a release date for "Jobs" right around the corner, audiences are still going to have to decide whether they can buy the guy from “That 70’s Show” as the innovating head of Apple Computers.

Who would have thought that sex addiction would become kind of... passé? Once a sort of taboo disease that made great fodder for tabloid talk shows, it's now positively mainstream, sitting alongside alcohol and drug addition as a treatable affliction you can learn to live with, with most folks now having a better understanding of what it's all about. But the movie world has yet to truly tackle the subject ("Shame" being one of the most high profile in recent years), but "Thanks For Sharing" will take a stab at it.

Generally, movies about the technology industry aren't very good and are very few, and outside of "The Social Network," there are even less based on real events. In fact, it kind of says something in certain dork circles, "The Pirates Of Silicon Valley" -- even with its totally '90s casting of Noah Wyle as Steve Jobs and Anthony Michael Hall as Bill Gates -- still stands beloved, even though it's also kind of not very good. But can "Jobs" challenge for the crown? Granted, it doesn't have to leap very high, but you may have to get past Ashton Kutcher as the founder of Apple.

It's been rumored for a while, but it looks like it's actually happening, per Deadline: Al Pacino and David Gordon Green are teaming up. As reported a while back, the unlikely duo are pairing up on "Manglehorn," which will see Pacino as "an eccentric man who tries to come to terms with a past crime that cost him the love of his life." While Pacino's been doing some solid work on HBO, it's a full decade since his last great big screen performance (in Christopher Nolan's "Insomnia"), so the team up with Gordon Green couldn't have come soon enough, especially as we're hearing good buzz on "Joe," his next film, with Nicolas Cage. Photography will get underway in October

Things are beginning to quiet down in Park City, but the Sundance Film Festival will wrap up this week with "Jobs," the first finished biopic about Apple founder Steve Jobs (Sony is also working on an ambitiously structured project penned by Aaron Sorkin). And while it's slated to hit theaters in the spring, a new clip has arrived that gives you a sense of what Ashton Kutcher is like in the lead role...

As always, there will be no shortage of movies based on real life characters at Sundance. "Lovelace," "The Look Of Love," "Big Sur," "Kill Your Darlings" will be offering up cinematic tales based on true people, but perhaps the most high profile of the batch is "Jobs." Yes, it's the movie where Ashton Kutcher is playing pioneering (and late) founder of Apple, Steve Jobs. And it seems the advance word on this one right now, is mostly around Kutcher's uncanny likeness to the tech hero.

It's no secret that the '80s are back in a big way in Hollywood, and for proof look no further than the success of “The Expendables 2” and the countless remakes and reboots of Reagan-era franchises. That, however, doesn’t make it any less strange that a sequel to the 1988 Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito-starring comedy, “Twins,” is in the works with Eddie Murphy as a long-lost brother. The studio has already tapped a pair of writers to tackle the story of “Triplets.”

The quest to find a young adult book series that can easily be turned into a film franchise of “The Hunger Games” or “Twilight” proportions seems to be everlasting. One of the more recent attempts is currently coming together in the form of author Cassandra Clare’s “The Mortal Instruments” saga, with the first installment entitled “City of Bones” set to roll soon in front of cameras, and the cast is slowly shaping up. The film has lined up two more talented individuals in “The Hobbit” star Aidan Turner, who will be happily leaping from one epic franchise to another – along with “The Shield” regular and “Avatar” actress CCH Pounder. Turner will be filling the role of Luke Garroway in director Harald Zwart’s adaptation, while Pounder will assume to role of Madame Dorothea. Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower are the HAWT duo of this series, leaving Lena Heady, Jared Harris, Robert Sheehan, Kevin Durand and more to do the background work. Screen Gems will be releasing the film stateside in the late summer spot of August 13, 2013.

All it takes is one little film to bust down a taboo, and so it's seemingly been done with Steve McQueen's "Shame." The critically-acclaimed drama was a rare picture to tackle the question of sex addiction, and while it hasn't quite opened the floodgates, it's made it easier for other filmmakers to tackle the subject matter.

It may be hard to believe, but Ashton Kutcher is going to play Steve Jobs in the upcoming indie biopic "Jobs." We know the news of Kutcher's casting arrived on the heels of April Fool's day, but it's true and, if you haven't accepted that the co-star of "Dude, Where's My Car" is going to play the late Apple CEO, it's time to move on. That's exactly what director Joshua Michael Stevens ("Swing Vote") has been doing, adding a second cast member in "The Book of Mormon" actor Josh Gad.
