The new film that starts Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs (which is still unfortunately titled “jOBS”, apparently), has gotten an April release date, according to the Wall Street Journal. The film, directed by Joshua Michael Stern, will premiere at the very end of the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah later on this month, but will eventually open for a wider release sometime in April.

This is the first of two Steve Jobs movies we’re scheduled to see come together in 2013, with the other one currently being written by none other than Aaron Sorkin. That one’s a little farther behind, so it hasn’t even started shooting yet, and we’re not even close to a release date for that one.

But if the picture of Kutcher as Jobs intrigues you above, you won’t have long to wait — the movie is just a few months away from finding its way to a theater near you.
