Ahna O’Reilly clicks with Steve Jobs pic

She'll play Chris-Ann Brennan opposite Ashton Kutcher

“The Help” star Ahna O’Reilly is set to play the female lead opposite Ashton Kutcher in Joshua Michael Stern’s indie “Jobs.”

Matt Whiteley-scripted pic stars Kutcher and Josh Gad as Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.

O’Reilly has been tapped to play Chris-Ann Brennan, the Bay Area painter who was Jobs’ first girlfriend and later gave birth to his daughter, Lisa. Brennan recently penned an essay for Rolling Stone about her time with the young, romantic Jobs.

Five Star Institute’s Mark Hulme is financing and will produce the film, which will begin lensing soon. CAA is repping the pic’s domestic distribution rights.

O’Reilly had small parts in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Nancy Drew” before her breakout perf as Elizabeth Leefolt in “The Help,” which was nominated for last year’s best picture Oscar. Thesp recently wrapped “The Time Being,” which co-stars Wes Bentley, Sarah Paulson and Frank Langella, and she’s also attached to the dark comedy “Teddy Bears” along with Gillian Jacobs, Melanie Lynskey, David Krumholtz and Jason Ritter.

O’Reilly is repped by WME, Luber Roklin Entertainment and attorney Derek Kroeger.
