Sundance Film Festival to debut Ashton Kutcher’s portrayal of Steve Jobs

Sundance Film Festival to debut Ashton Kutcher’s portrayal of Steve JobsThe Sundance Film Festival will be the venue for the first ever screening of the movie “jOBS which sees Ashton Kutcher in the role of Steve Jobs. The film has been included in the line-up and will be screened in January 2013 according to The Verge

This coming January is likely to be the first time that anyone outside of a production facility will get a look at jOBS, the new biopic of Steve Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher. The movie, which was initially announced in April of this year, covers 30 years of Jobs' life from 1971 to 2000 as an entrepreneur and leader of such companies as Apple, NeXT, and Pixar. It also stars Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, and Matthew Modine.

jOBS is set to be screened on January 27, 2013, the closing night of the Sundance festival. It is not yet clear when it will be released to regular theaters for those that can't attend the movie festival.

The jOBS film is not to be confused with the Sony film which is based on the recent best-selling book Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson; this is an entirely independent venture. The screening of the jOBS film was originally slated for a late fall 2012 release so it looks like it has slipped a little behind schedule. Not too much longer to wait especially if you are planning on attending the Sundance Film Festival. The 2013 Sundance Film Festival takes place between January 17-27 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah.
