jOBS movie to close 11-day festival in January.
Two films detailing former Apple guru Steve Jobs' life are in the works at present, although jOBS starring Ashton Kutcher in the lead role is probably bagging the most chatter – perhaps supported by his rocky love life.
Production started on the film in May, and the Sundance Institute has announced that the film will premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in January, closing the 11-day ceremony.
Trevor Groth, director of programming for the Sundance Film Festival, said: "The films in the Premieres and Documentary Premieres sections offer compelling portraits of worlds and people ranging from the beloved to the misunderstood to the unknown.
"Expertly crafted by some of the most esteemed filmmakers in the world these films have the power to delight audiences at the Festival and impact our culture at large."
