jOBS independent biopic to hit theaters in April 2013

Set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival at the end this month, the jOBS biopic starring Ashton Kutcher as the titular Steve Jobs, now has a date on which you can expect its wider release. Or at least a month: April 2013. According to, the independent movie has signed Open Road Films to handle domestic distribution and Inferno Entertainment for the international side of things.

jOBS should not to be confused with the still-in-pre-production untitled film being written by Aaron Sorkin and produced by Sony, which is based on the official Walter Isaacson biography of Steve Jobs. When that film is due - or who it's going to star or what it'll be called - is still an unknown. In the meantime, jOBS is on its way in April with Ashton Kutcher in uncanny tow.

  • Gonna be an amazing movie!!
  • I'm curious to see if this Bozo can actually nail a serious role.
  • Kutchers a good Actor. And as he gets older, He matures more. I can see him nailing that position very well.
