Steve Jobs biopic to close Sundance

Ashton Kutcher's typographically unique Steve Jobs biopic “jOBS” will be the closing screening of this year's Sundance Film Festival, in advance of an April theatrical release, per The Hollywood Reporter. Directed by relative newcomer Joshua Michael Stern, “jOBS” tells the story of Steve Jobs' journey from college dropout to revered entrepreneurial icon.

This marks Kutcher's first foray into dramatic roles, unless one counts his turn in “The Butterfly Effect,” so there's little basis on which to speculate on his effectiveness at playing the Apple co-founder, chairman, and CEO, especially considering it's not yet known what artistic approach will be taken; Kutcher's casting could be a stretch, or the approach may be tailored to his more-familiar light comedy talents. The fact that “jOBS” is being released in April rather than November or December, while not an indicator of the film's prospects in itself, does speak to a desire by its producers to not have “jOBS” compared too immediately to awards-season fare. It is not, of course, proof of the film's quality. That remains to be seen.

Kutcher is joined in the cast by Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, Matthew Modine, Dermot Mulroney, and J.K. Simmons. The first round of reviews will certainly follow its screening at Sundance later this month.
