iSteve, Funny or Die’s Steve Jobs Biopic, Gets a Teaser TrailerBy: Josh Wolford - April 2, 2013
Last month, online comedy site Funny or Die announced that they had already made their own Steve Jobs biopic and were planning on launching it on April 15th.
The film, called iSteve, is set to run over an hour – much longer than most Funny or Die projects. The film stars Justin Long as Jobs (Dodgeball, Accepted, Waiting, and the “Mac” in those old PC vs Mac Apple ads). Lost‘s Jorge Garcia stars as Steve Wozniak.
Today, Funny or Die has dropped the official teaser trailer – and it doesn’t seem all that funny. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, of course. Just, unexpected.
iSteve will be the first of three noteworthy Steve Jobs biopics to land, premiering on April 15th. Jobs (formerly titled jOBS), or the Ashton Kutcher one, was originally slated for an April 19th release – but was recently pushed back for additional marketing. Then there’s the biggest-budget Steve Jobs biopic, Sony’s still untitled project based on Walter Isaacson’s bestselling autobiography Steve Jobs. That’s currently being penned by The Social Network and The West Wing‘s Aaron Sorkin.
