Ashton Kutcher playing Steve Jobs in upcoming biopicAfter pushing the date back from April, Open Road Films has announced the Steve Jobs Biopic will be released in the US on August 16. jOBS, which was shown at Sundance to mixed reviews, chronicles Jobs’ life from 1971 through 2001, covering his ascension from college dropout to one of the most admired entrepreneurs of the 20th Century. Ashton Kutcher stars as Jobs himself and Josh Gad plays Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. The film was directed by Joshua Michael Stern and written by Matthew Whiteley.

Open Road Films, in charge of distributing the film, says that jOBS “plunges into the depths of [Jobs’] 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.”

Come August we will see for ourselves how good the story is.
