In March, comedy site Funny or Die announced that it would be releasing a 60- to 75-minute parody biopic of Apple's late co-founder Steve Jobs, based on his Wikipedia page, on 15 April. This week, the site has unveiled the first teaser trailer for 'iSteve', which stars Apple's 'Mac vs. PC' ad series actor Justin Long.
The 90-second trailer focuses on audio clips from the film, which Funny or Die says took just three days to write and five days to film. "We might not be the best, but we will be the first," said the film's director, Ryan Perez.
The Jobs Movie starring Ashton Kutcher was last month pushed back from its April release date in order to give Open Road Films more time to market the movie, reports said, leaving iSteve to release its satirical movie on its website first.
Sony is also working on a Steve Jobs movie based on Walter Isaacson's official biography. The book has been adapted into a screenplay by The Social Network's Aaron Sorkin, and is expected to make its way to our screens later this year.
Funny or Die's iSteve features Justin Long as Steve Jobs. The actor starred as the Mac in Apple's US series of 'Mac vs. PC' ads between 2006 and 2009. In iSteve, Long is joined by James Urbaniak as Bill Gates, Michaela Watkins as Melinda Gates, and Jorge Garcia as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
