jOBS: Steve Jobs Film Starring Ashton Kutcher Coming in April


‘jOBS’, the new Steve Jobs movie—starring Ashton Kutcher as the former Apple CEO—has been given an April 2013 release date. Beforehand, the film will be shown this month on the closing night of the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

According to the film’s distributors, Open Road Films and Five Star Feature, the synopsis of the film will be as follows:

“Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, written by Matthew Whitely, shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter and produced by Mark Hulme, jOBS details the major moments and defining characters that influenced Steve Jobs on a daily basis from 1971 through 2000. 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. The filmmakers were granted unprecedented access during shooting to the historic garage in Palo Alto, that served as the birthplace to Apple Inc.”
