jOBS, the Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher, will make its debut in January at the Sundance Film Festival as the event's closing film, it has been revealed.
Sundance.org announced 2013's Sundance Film Festival lineup on Monday, noting that jOBS, which will depict Apple's late co-founder's life from 1971 to 2000, will be the 'Closing Night Film' on 27 January.
"jOBS is a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently," Sundance describes.
Not only did Sundance announce the first showing of jOBS, it also released the first official image of Two And A Half Men star Ashton Kutcher in the role of Steve Jobs The image has been based on a photograph of Jobs himself, as shown below. We're quite impressed with the resemblance between the two.

Also starring in the movie are Josh Gad as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Matthew Modine, who plays ex-Apple CEO John Scully, Giles Matthey as Jony Ive and Ahna O'Reilly, who plays Jobs' ex-girlfriend Chris-Ann Brennan.
The jOBS film should not be confused with Sony Picture's movie adaptation of Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs biography, which screenwriter Aaron Sorkin recently revealed will have a three-scene structure set backstage at keynotes.
