Can the present progressive be used to indicate the future as follows?

John is working at the store for two months.

If so, how does it differ from "John is going to work at the store for two months"?

    John is working at the store for two months could feasibly be said before he starts that two weeks of employment, but the "default" reading would be that he's already started doing it. On the other hand, John is going to work at the store for two months would normally be taken to imply he hasn't yet started doing so. Mar 5 at 15:33
