Steve Jobs biopic 'jOBS' gets release date
Mark your iPad: jOBS, the biopic about Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ life, is coming to theaters April 19.
Open Road Films will release the picture, which stars Ashton Kutcher as the late tech giant. The movie – which will trace the major events in his life from the early days at Apple in 1971 to his return to the company by 2001 — also features Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine. jOBS is not to be confused with the other Steve Jobs biopic, based on Walter Isaacson’s 2011 biography.
Directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote) and written by Matthew Whiteley, Jobs will premiere this Friday at the closing night of the Sundance Film Festival.
