"Jobs" Biopic Release Date Delayed
It was recently reported that the Steve Jobs biopic, titled “Jobs,” starring Ashton Kutcher in the lead Role has been delayed with no tentative release date set. For those of you who didn’t already know, the film was originally scheduled to open in theaters nationwide on April 16th to commemorate the 37th anniversary of Apple’s founding. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film has been pushed back to an as-of-yet undetermined date.
According to people who claimed to be familiar with the matter, the film’s production company Open Road wanted more time for marketing after the films first debut at this year’s Sundance Film Festival in January.
At its premiere, “Jobs” seemed to receive mixed reviews, with some claiming that the characters were far from their real-life counterparts. During the 29th annual Macworld conference though, Kutcher said the movie “was done with the utmost love, admiration, and respect.”
The movie was directed by Joshua Michael Stern and written by Matthew Whitely, covering the defining 30 years of the Apple cofounder’s life, including pivotal moments in Apple history such as the launch of the first Mac and the iPod. Unfortunately, though of you who were interested in watching the movie have been left waiting indefinitely, although we’re sure a release date will be announced in the near future.
