Fans of Ashton Kutcher and Apple technology have a new reason to look forward to 2013. jOBS, the new independent movie based on the life of the late Apple boss will start screening in theatres in April. However, this is not the same movie, shot by Sony Pictures and inspired by Walter Isaacsonâ€™s biography. The movie will feature Ashton Kutcher in the leading role and will be premiered this month at the Sundance Film Festival.
Open Road Films and Five Start Feature Film posted this week more information about the flick:
â€œDirected 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.â€
jOBS also stars Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine amongst others. Ashton Kutcher has acted in movies like â€œDude, Whereâ€™s my Carâ€ and â€œThe Butterfly Effectâ€ and TV shows like â€œTwo and a Half Menâ€. He is a tremendous popular actor. However, it remains to be seen if he can slip into the skin of the Silicon Valley overlord.
Apparently, this is not all Steve Jobs fans will get. Another movie is in the works and this time efforts are lead by Aaron Sorkin who also did â€œThe Social Networkâ€. The film is said to focus on the launches of the Mac, NeXT and iPod.
