Steve Jobs biopic ‘jOBS’ Hits Theaters in April
But Kutcher won’t be playing the young and shaggy Jobs the entire time. Produced by Mark Hulme, the movie details nearly 30 years of Jobs’ life – from 1971 to 2000 – and focuses on the major milestones and characters that influenced the Apple founder. Josh Gad plays Steve Wozniak, and Dermot Mulroney and Matthew Modine also star alongside Kutcher.
“jOBS plunges into the depths of his character, creating an intense dialogue-driven story that is as much a sweeping epic as it is an immensely personal portrait of Steve Jobs’ life,” Open Road Films says of the movie.
The filmmakers were also “granted unprecedented access” to the famous garage in Palo Alto, Calif., where Jobs and Wozniak first started making Apple computers.
Another Jobs biopic, written by Aaron Sorkin, is also being planned.
The only question left: What does Apple itself have in store for the March-April time frame?
