LOS ANGELES, Jan. 3 (UPI) -- Open Road Films says it has partnered with Five Star Feature Films to distribute "jOBS," the bio-picture about California computer genius Steve Jobs.

The movie will be the closing night film at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival this month.

It is set for a theatrical release in April, Tom Ortenberg, chief executive officer of Open Road Films, and Mark Hulme of Five Star Feature Films, announced Thursday.

Directed by Joshua Michael Stern and written by Matthew Whitely, the film stars Ashton Kutcher as the Apple co-founder.

The cast includes Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.

"'jOBS' is certain to resonate with audiences and we are thrilled to partner with Five Star Feature Films to bring this film to theaters," Ortenberg said in a statement.

"We set out to find the perfect partners to present 'jOBS' to audiences worldwide, and we feel we have found one with Open Road," Hulme said. "They were as impressed as we were with Ashton Kutcher's inspiring and unforgettable performance as Steve Jobs and are excited to distribute the picture in the United States."
