(USA Today) - Steve Jobs, who revolutionized product unveiling, is set to have the movie equivalent: His biopic has a release date.
The filmmakers behind jOBS, the newly completed movie of Jobs' life, announced Thursday that the film had found a distributor in Open Road Films and that it would be released in April.
Starring Ashton Kutcher as Jobs and produced by Mark Hulme, the film details the major moments that influenced the entrepreneur from 1971 through 2000.
The filmmakers were granted unprecedented access during shooting to the historic garage in Palo Alto, Calif., that was the birthplace to Apple.

The film also stars Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.
jOBS also will close the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
