This coming January is likely to be the first time that anyone outside of a production facility will get a look at jOBS, the new biopic of Steve Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher. The movie, which was initially announced in April of this year, covers 30 years of Jobs’ life from 1971 to 2000 as an entrepreneur and leader of such companies as Apple, NeXT, and Pixar. It also stars Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, and Matthew Modine.

The movie is not based on Walter Isaacson’s biography of Jobs, released shortly after Jobs’ death last fall. A separate film that is based on Isaacson’s book is also in the works, and is being written by famed screenplay author Aaron Sorkin.

jOBS is set to be screened on January 27, 2013, the closing night of the Sundance festival. It is not yet clear when it will be released to regular theaters for those that can’t attend the movie festival.
