Mark your calendars.
Although the film was initially expected to debut in April (I guess production issues arise with anything Apple related), the new Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher will finally open nationwide August 16th.
The film purportedly covers approximately 30 years of Jobs’ life, from 1971 to 2000.
The film 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.
In addition to Ashton Kutcher, the movie also stars Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.
Incidentally, “Jobs” is one of two forthcoming films focused on the late Apple visionary and co-founder. The other production is a big-budget, Sony-backed picture which is currently being penned by award-winning writer, Aaron Sorkin.
That flick is said to be based on Walter Isaacson’s official biography.
