jOBS film to debut at Sundance Film Festival

We've talked on several occasions about the Steve Jobs bio picture made independently with Ashton Kutcher playing Jobs. The movie is called jOBS and originally I thought it was a very strange choice to put Ashton Kutcher in the lead. As more photos from the set of the film surfaced, it was clear Kutcher and the 70s version of Steve Jobs look eerily similar.

Check out the photograph above to see what I mean. Anyone familiar with Kutcher will recognize him on the left and 70s Steve Jobs on the right. We have some more details on the jOBS biopic that have surfaced this week. Previously the film was aiming for a Q4 2012 launch.

Since this is Q4 2012, fans of Kutcher might be wondering exactly when the film will debut. It appears that the Q4 launch window originally promised won't be met. The movie is set for its first screening on January 27, 2013, which is the last night of the Sundance Film Festival.

Obviously, that moves the picture from a Q4 debut to a Q1 2013 debut. It remains unclear when or if the film will be released into movie theaters. There have been some indications in the past that the movie might go straight to TV. The jOBS biofilm covers 30 years of Steve Jobs' life from 1971 to 2000.
