It was recently announced which film would close Sundance 2013, the Joshua Stern-directed biopic of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. Ashton Kutcher, known for his appearances in television series such as “That ’70s Show,” will play the headlining role, for which he underwent a significant physical transformation.
The film recalls the life of Steve Jobs, who passed away on October 5, 2011, and especially “the decisive thirty years.” This is the first biopic made since his death. It will close out the 2013 edition, which is to be held from January 17 to 27 in the cities of Park City, Salt Lake City and Ogden.
Joshua Michael Stern is known for his 2008 “Swing Vote” starring Kevin Costner and Dennis Hopper. The script was written by first-time scribe Matt Whiteley.
