Ashton Kutcher's Steve Jobs Movie Release Delayed & Gets New Title
After feasting our eyes on the first Steve Jobs biopic to hit big screens at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, THR reports the film jOBS, starring Ashton Kutcher as the Apple founder and visionary, will not be getting released on April 19th as we heard earlier this year, and will also officially have a new title. Though the original title unnecessarily used the iPod capitalization style, the film will simply be called Jobs. In addition, the film has been delayed as Open Road Films wanted more time to market the film rather than rushing it out to theaters. It makes sense since we haven't even seen an official poster or a trailer for the film just yet. We weren't particularly blown away by the film (see our video review here), but it's not abysmal.
Jobs is directed by Joshua Michael Stern and written by Matt Whiteley and tells the true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history by chronicling the defining 30 years of Steve Jobs' life as he revolutionized the personal computer, founded Apple, introduced the world to the iPod and more. Ashton Kutcher plays Steve Jobs and the supporting cast includes the likes of Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, Matthew Modine, James Woods and more. The film premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and does not yet have a new release date, but we still expect it in theaters sometime in 2013.
