Comedy website Funny or Die is planning to release an epic Steve Jobs biopic of their own on April 15th according to a New York Times report.
The 60 to 75 minute mini-movie “iSteve”, stars actor Justin Long and represents the longest movie project to date for the Funny or Die team.
“In true Internet fashion, it’s not based on very thorough research — essentially a cursory look at the Steve Jobs Wikipedia page,” iSteve Director Ryan Perez, told the NYT. “It’s very silly. But it looks at his whole life.”
“We might not be the best, but we will be the first,” he joked.
Perez revealed that his own 81-page script was written in just three days — requiring only 5 days of filming to complete the biopic that pokes fun at the other biopics.
The satirical spoof will manage to beat the ho-hum Ashton Kutcher project to market — now that distributors of the “Jobs” biopic announced that the release, originally scheduled for April 19th has been delayed.
iSteve producer Allison Hord, ensured that “even the harshest fanboy critics will be able to laugh with us.” when describing the tone of this 3rd Steve Jobs centered film.
It's been rumored that Los Angeles trash-stalking artist Jeff Hamilton, may already be collecting personal garbage from the film's director, actors and crew in order to produce a Limited Edition iSteve collectible figurine in time to benefit from the movie's highly publicized online release.
