The new 'jOBS' movie, about former Apple CEO Steve Jobs, is set to arrive in theaters in April, according to the movie's distributors. The premier will take place at the closing night of the Sundance Film Festival, which takes place this month. It's important to note that this is not the film that Sony Pictures is creating.
Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, written by Matthew Whitely, shot by Oscar- winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter and produced by Mark Hulme, jOBS details the major moments and defining characters that influenced Steve Jobs on a daily basis from 1971 through 2000. jOBS plunges into the depths of his 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. The filmmakers were granted unprecedented access during shooting to the historic garage in Palo Alto, that served as the birthplace to Apple Inc.
