Steve Jobs Biopic "jOBS" Hits Theaters in April

Sundance Institute(NEW YORK) -- Wondering when you’ll be able to see Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs on the big screen? Open Road Films and Five Star Feature Films, which have partnered to release the film, announced that jOBS will be released in April. The movie will premiere later this month at the Sundance Film Festival, which runs from Jan. 17-27 in Park City, Utah.

But Kutcher won’t be playing the young and shaggy Jobs the entire time. Produced by Mark Hulme, the movie details nearly 30 years of Jobs’ life -- from 1971 to 2000 -- and focuses on the major milestones and characters that influenced the Apple founder.

jOBS plunges into the depths of his character, creating an intense dialogue-driven story that is as much a sweeping epic as it is an immensely personal portrait of Steve Jobs’ life,” Open Road Films says of the movie.

Josh Gad plays Steve Wozniak, and Dermot Mulroney and Matthew Modine also star alongside Kutcher.

The filmmakers were also “granted unprecedented access” to the famous garage in Palo Alto, Calif., where Jobs and Wozniak first started making Apple computers.

Another Jobs biopic, written by Aaron Sorkin, is also being planned.
