The organizers of the Sundance Film Festival announced today that director Joshua Michael Stern’s independent Steve Jobs biopic, the oddly capitalized jOBS, will premiere on January 27, the final night of this year’s festival in Park City, Utah. In making the announcement, Sundance issued the first official publicity photo of actor Ashton Kutcher as the late Apple CEO and co-founder, which you can see above.
The shot, modeled after an actual photo, depicts Jobs with long hair and a beard, wearing a long-sleeve button-down and jeans. He’s leaning against his work desk in a cubicle that features a rainbow-colored IBM “THINK” poster and an Apple II. Unsurprisingly, Kutcher looks eerily like a young Jobs. You can see a larger version of the photo here.
Here’s the first official photo of Ashton Kutcher in ‘jOBS’ originally appeared on TUAW – The Unofficial Apple Weblog on Mon, 03 Dec 2012 21:30:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
