Ashton Kutcher’s ‘Jobs’ Set For Aug. 16

Biopic also stars Mulroney, Gad, Haas

Open Road Films has set an Aug. 16 release date in the U.S. for “Jobs,” the indie Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher.

Open Road had announced during Sundance that it planned to open the film in April to coincide with the 37th anniversary of the founding of the Apple Computer Co. by Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne. But it backed off that date in March without explanation.

The “Jobs” premiere was the closing night film at Sundance. Biopic 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 was Apple’s birthplace. “Jobs” also stars Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.

Three other titles have slotted for Aug. 16 — Universal’s “Kick-Ass 2,” Relativity’s “Paranoia” and Weinstein Co.’s “The Butler.”
