Funny Or Die to Release Comedic Steve Jobs Biopic

Steve Jobs is somewhat of a sacred cow. And with every sacred cow, there's gonna be someone making fun of it.

With two dueling Steve Jobs movies in the works - jOBS starring Ashton Kutcher famously being the first one to be released, while the Aaron Sorkin film is still in production - Funny or Die has announced that the comedy website will in fact release the first Steve Jobs biopic. Sneaky.

The movie, called iSteve, will run about 60-75 minutes and star Justin Long in the title role.

According to writer/director Ryan Perez, the started as a fake trailer and escalated into a full movie. It took three days to write and five days to shoot, with most of the biographical information coming from Wikipedia.

Should be a pretty interesting experiment. Watch iSteve on Funny or Die beginning April 15.
