Today, Open Road Films and Five Star Feature films announced that agreements for distribution have been made for the Steve Jobs biopic “jOBS’, reports Deadline. The movie will be released in April of this year.
The film features Ashton Kutcher as Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and is said to feature the 30 years of Jobs’s life.
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.
‘jOBS’ will premier at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah later this month.
