Jobs biopic to close Sundance

4 January 2013

Ashton Kutcher's Steve Jobs biopic will close the Sundance Film Festival.

jOBS, which stars the Two And A Half Men actor as the late Apple co-founder and pioneer of the iPod, will be the closing night film on January 25, ahead of its release date in US cinemas in April.

The "personal portrait" and "sweeping epic", directed by Joshua Michael Stern, focuses on over 30 years of Steve's career from 1971 to 2000 and how he turned his life around from college drop-out to one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century.

Producer Mark Hulme of Five Star Feature Films described Ashton's performance as "inspiring and unforgettable".

The film, which also stars Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad and Matthew Modine, was shot in the historic garage in Palo Alto, that served as the birthplace to Steve's now world-famous company.

jOBS will be one of two Hollywood films about Steve, with the other by Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, who wrote Facebook movie The Social Network.
