First Look: Ashton Kutcher from Sundance 2013 Steve 'jOBS' Biopic
Let the buzz begin. It's official - the Steve Jobs indie biopic jOBS has been confirmed to premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in January. Announced this afternoon in the Premieres line-up is the film, directed by Joshua Michael Stern, starring Ashton Kutcher as the late Steve Jobs. Okay, so this is isn't exactly our very first look as there have been a lot of set photos have been floating around of Kutcher. But this is clearly a promo shot, and it looks pretty good. It resembles the real Steve Jobs Apple shot from circa ~70s, which I've added below. So the buzz begins for Kutcher at Sundance 2013 in jOBS - added it to my list.
Here's the first promo photo, as found by The Film Stage. I guess that spelling of jOBS for the title is official.
The Sundance 2013 announcement includes this description: jOBS (Director: Joshua Michael Stern, Screenwriter: Matt Whiteley) — The true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history, jOBS chronicles the defining 30 years of Steve Jobs' life. jOBS is a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently. Cast: Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, Matthew Modine. We learned a lot about the film's plot back in April, which will indeed cover roughly 30 years in the life of the technology innovator. It's listed as the Closing Night Film, so it'll premiere in the later half of the festival beginning on January 17th, but we'll be there to catch it. See you in Park City!
