The Steve Jobs movie starring Ashton Kutcher, not to be confused with the move being produced by Sony, finally has a release date. The Sundance Institute announced yesterday that jOBS would be premiering in January at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
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.
jOBS / U.S.A. (Director: Joshua Michael Stern, Screenwriter: Matt Whiteley) — The true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history, jOBSchronicles the defining 30 years of Steve Jobs’ life. jOBS is a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently. Cast: Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, Matthew Modine. CLOSING NIGHT FILM
jOBS will actually be premiering on the last day of the film festival, January 27th at midnight, which is a big honor. After the movie is premiered it is not clear whether it will air in additional theatres or not.
Even though there has been some scepticism that Ashton Kutcher, from That 70’s Show, was not the right choice for the role as Steve Jobs, from various leaked pictures he indeed looks the part. And we will soon see if he indeed can act the part shortly.
