The movie, reportedly written in three days and shot in only five, spans between 60-75 minutes and is by far the longest film project ever undertaken by the site. “In true Internet fashion, it’s not based on very thorough research — essentially a cursory look at the Steve Jobs Wikipedia page,” Ryan Perez, who wrote and directed “iSteve,” told the NY Times
. “It’s very silly. But it looks at his whole life.”
FOD's biopic places actor Justin Long in the lead role — a face many will instantly recognize as the "Mac Guy" in those iconic Apple commercials
from a few years back. As you'll see in the new trailer, this Steve Jobs film amusingly appears to be the one that best captures the reality distortion field that was a big part of his legend
. Whether it manages to incorporate a bit of serious drama (not likely) into the silly is something we'll have to wait until April 15 to find out. Check out the teaser below.
