Legend of Apple co-founder Jobs heads to big screen
LOS ANGELES, California (AFP) - The life and times of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs will be immortalized on the big screen next week as the first of two planned biopics about the visionary computer guru lands in theaters.
Almost two years after Jobs lost his long battle with cancer, Jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher as the iconic computer industry titan, is to be released Friday.
The independent film opens ahead of a bigger-budget project on Jobs planned by Sony that is being put together with the support of Apple's other co-founder Steve Wozniak.
Jobs was screened at the prestigious Sundance International Film Festival earlier this year where it received a lukewarm reception from critics.
