Steve Jobs Biopic ‘jOBS’ to Hit Theaters in April 2013
Apple’s late CEO and Chairman Steve Jobs undoubtedly left a major impact on the company, with principles that drive the company to this day since his death in late 2011. Following his death, a number of video tributes began to appear online, as well as rumors that there were multiple films coming out about the Apple co-founder’s life.
Late last year, it was confirmed that that the Steve Jobs biopic starring actor Ashton Kutcher would premiere at the Sundance Film Festival later this month. The movie now has a timeframe for release, which is slated for April 2013.
Distribution, both international will be handled by Open Road Films and Inferno Entertainment. This biopic is different from the film that is currently in production by Sony Entertainment and is being written by Aaron Sorkin. Sorkin’s version of the film is based on the official biography, called Steve Jobs and written by author Walter Isaacson.
Sorkin’s film currently does not have a date of release. However, the biopic starring Kutcher is confirmed for April, likely in the first several weeks before other fils from Sundance begin to be released.
