Ashton Kutcher's anticipated Steve Jobs biopic, "jOBS," is set to hit theaters on August 16, according to a new report from The Wrap. It is hoped that the movie, which also stars Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak and Matthew Modine as John Scully, among others, will meet with a larger audience since it's set to launch after most of the summer blockbusters. The website reports:
Joshua Michael Stern ("Swing Vote") directed "Jobs," which follows the co-founder of Apple from his early years as a wayward hippie to eventually becoming one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time. Matt Whiteley wrote the film, which co-stars Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak, as well as James Woods, Matthew Modine, Dermot Mulroney, Lukas Haas and Ahna O'Reilly.Below, we've included a movie clip taken from "jOBS" to help get you excited for the film. While Steve Wozniak has indeed pronounced the movie to be "very wrong" in places, it nevertheless looks to be a whole lot better than Funny or Die's 78-minute endeavor, "iSteve." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yURNUwmslGk&feature=player_embedded
