There are two Steve Jobs biographical films in the works in Hollywood right now. One is being written by Aaron Sorkin and sounds like it might be a hit. The other has been fast-tracked for a 2013 release, stars Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs, and is probably going to suck.
We’ll have to wait a while for Sorkin’s flick, but Ashton’s film, jOBS, has been filming throughout 2012 and will be making its official debut at the Sundance Film Festival this January in Park City, Utah.
jOBS is scheduled to be screened on January 27, 2013 which is the closing night of the Sundance festival. A major release date for the film has not been announced at this time.
jOBS will cover 30 years of Steve Jobs’ life from 1971 to 2000. Along with Ashton Kutcher, jOBS also starts Dermot Mulrony, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, and Matthew Modine.
