Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs

jOBS—the Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher—will be released in April 2013. If you’re going to this year’s Sundance Film Festival, you’ll be able to see the movie before everyone else as it will be shown as the closing-night film.

jOBS follows the life of Steve Jobs from 1971 to 2000 and highlights the important people and events that drove him to succeed in the face of adversity.

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. jOBS stars Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine. Inferno Entertainment is handling international sales on jOBS.
