Portrait of Apple co-founder, jOBS, in lineup for event, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut also set to feature

A Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher, jOBS, will be the closing night film at the 2013 Sundance film festival.

Joshua Michael Stern's drama will span three decades of the entrepreneur's life and is described as "a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently" on the Sundance website. The festival has also released the first still from the film, which shows Kutcher in character as the Apple co-founder at work. A 1977 Apple II computer sits in the background, near a poster that reads "Think" – presumably a nod to Apple's "Think different" advertising campaign of the late 1990s.

jOBS is one of a clutch of high-profile releases added to the lineup announced last week. Among the films joining it in Park City, Utah, will be Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, »
