The Sundance Film Festival has announced that the jOBS biopic starring Ashton Kutcher in the title role, will premiere on the last day of the event. The film will be given the honor of being the closing film of the event.


First spotted by The Verge, the Sundance release noted jOBS will be a “Closing night film,” and will chronicle the defining 30 years of Apple cofounder Steve Jobs.

The cast was recently spotted filming at the late Apple co-founder’s Los Altos home where the first Apple computer was built. In addition to Kutcher as Jobs, others appearing in the film include, Ahna O’Reilly as Jobs’ ex-girlfriend Chris-Ann Brennan, and Josh Gad taking on the role of Steve Wozniak. Matthew Modine will appear in the role of former Apple CEO John Sculley with an unknown actor in the role of Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
