Open Road to release ‘Jobs’ April 19

Ashton Kutcher stars in Steve Jobs biopic

Open Road Films has set an April 19 release date for “Jobs,” the indie Steven Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher.

The distrib noted that April 2013 marks the 37th anniversary of the founding of the Apple Computer Co. by Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne.

Open Road made the announcement Wednesday, two days before “Jobs” premieres as the closing nighter at the Sundance Film Festival.

“Jobs” is directed by Joshua Michael Stern. Matthew Whiteley’s script details the major moments and defining characters that influenced Jobs from 1971 through 2001. The filmmakers shot footage in the Palo Alto, Calif., garage that served as the birthplace to Apple.

“Jobs” also stars Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.

Universal’s “Oblivion” is also launching on April 19 following an Imax-only opening the previous weekend.
