Last year we told you that the Steve Jobs biopic called jOBS, staring Ashton Kutcher, would be premiering at the Sundance film festival. This is not to be confused with the other Steve Jobs film being produced by Sony. At the time we weren’t sure whether or not jOBS would make in appearance in other theatres, or if it would just be limited to the one showing at Sundance and then be distributed online and through DVD.
According to CNET however, jOBS will indeed be shown at other theatres as both Open Road Films and Five Star Feature Films have reached a distribution deal. jOBS will be released in theatres in April, which is only a few months from now.
As mentioned previously, the movie will of course be centered around Steve Jobs, being played by Ashton Kutcher, but Steve Wozniak, played by Josh Gad, will also make an appearance. The film will also feature scenes from the historic garage where Jobs and Wozniak founded Apple, as well as Jobs’ Los Altos home. This will help maintain both accuracy and authenticity.
If you aren’t able to make the premiere of the movie at Sundance, then mark your calendars for April. Although no specific date has been given, we will keep you guys updated when we hear about one.
