Ashton Kutcher Movie 'jOBS' to Be Released in April

Open Road Films has announced that it is the distributor for the Ashton Kutcher-led film jOBS, and that the movie will receive a full release in April of this year, reports Deadline.

Ashtonkutcher

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.

The film will premier at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah later this month.

I believe I will see this movie. I know little of Steve Jobs. Should be informative.

Or, as with many biopics, it could well be a hagiographic, semi-fictionalized, made-up dialogue, historically inaccurate presentation. Or not...:p ;)

I must disagree with one of the posters above...what little I have seen of Ashton Kutcher (I am, admittedly, not familiar with his entire oeuvre), no matter what is required of him, he is high school awful.

Just one man's opinion...:D

I agree with the earlier comments that Kutcher actually does know how to act. And he definitely is the spitting image of the younger Jobs. I'm looking forward to this film.

I still think it's a bit cheesy to have the lowercase j in the title, but that's just my opinion. We'll see how the actual film itself turns out to be. Truth be told I'm more interested in Sony's film however.
