Ashton Kutcher’s ‘Jobs’ Biopic Headlines Sundance Film Festival Premiere Schedule (PHOTOS)
Just in time for the upcoming awards season: Ashton Kutcher’s transformation into Steve Jobs is set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
Out of the 115 films making their debut on Jan. 17-27, the actor’s biopic, Jobs, was selected as the festival’s closing-night film in Park City, Utah, according to Variety. The much-anticipated flick chronicles the late Apple founder’s rise to fame as one of the revered entrepreneurs of the 20th century.
“Ashton is going to blow a lot of people away. His performance was absolutely transformational,” Kutcher’s costar Josh Gad told Us Weekly. If he looked any more like Steve Jobs, I think it would just confuse a lot of people in thinking Steve Jobs never passed away. It’s that uncanny.”
