Kutcher is Jobs in biographical film of Apple co-founder

Jan 24 2013, 2:52pm CST | by

Ashton Kutcher stars as the charismatic co-founder of Apple Computer in the biopic, jOBS, which will premiere tomorrow night at the Sundance Film Festival. In April, the movie will come to theaters nationwide.

Film goers, on Jan. 25, the closing night of the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, will get a chance to attend the world premiere of jOBS, featuring Ashton Kutcher as the colorful co-founder of Apple Computer.

Produced by Open Road Films and Mark Hulme's Five Star Features, the movie, described as a “biopic,” was directed by Joshua Michael Stern and written by Matthew Whitely. The film follows Steve Job's life beginning as a college drop out, to his meteoric rise as one of the most prominent entrepreneurs of the 20th Century.

A portion of the movie was filmed in the Palo Alto,Calif., garage, at Job's family home, where he began his quest to build a personal computer. Jobs is credited as being a pioneer of the personal computer revolution and visionary developer of consumer electronics. Jobs branched out to become co-founder and chief executive of Pixar Animation Studios, and served on the Walt Disney Company board.

Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K.Simmons and Matthew Modine are featured in the film. The movie was packaged by CAA and its international sales are being handled by Inferno Entertainment.

JOBS is scheduled for release in theaters in April. Jobs died Oct. 5, 2011.
