Woz fumes at Steve Jobs biopic
It takes a lot to get Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak upset – after all he forgave Steve Jobs many times over.
However he thinks that the Ashton Kutcher bio pic about Jobs is riddled with inaccuracies and appears to be doing his best to discredit the flick.
But Kutcher said that Woz is just disparaging the film because he's being paid to consult on a different Jobs film. That made Woz even crosser, saying that Kutcher has made 'disingenuous' and 'wrong' statements about him.
The spat, over the newly-released biopic entitled Jobs has played out in the columns of the tabloids.
The newly-released biopic of Apple founder Steve Jobs, entitled Jobs, has resulted in a furious exchange between Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and the film's lead, Ashton Kutcher.
Kutcher plays the tech "visionary" in the film, about which Wozniak has posted his own unsolicited review on the tech site Gizmodo.
The flick follows Jobs from his days as a college drop-out to the release of the iPod in 2001. Woz says it is 'fiction' but the public says it is boring. The film only opened in the US over the weekend, but has already garnered lukewarm reviews.
Ashton claims that since Woz is being paid by another studio to put out its own Jobs movie it is not really his fault. Woz was 'extremely unavailable for us when producing this film'.
Woz hit back that Kutcher's film had already been written - making his consultation unnecessary and he was 'turned off' by the Jobs script.
Woz was miffed by the inference that he would slander the film for money.
