There might be some editing room hijincks going on right about now…

Per Deadline and iMore, the Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher which was set to make its big screen debut on April 19 has now been delayed. According to a recent report, the film will no longer arrive on April 19 and no new date has been announced yet either. The film’s original release was set to coincide with the date that the late Steve Jobs had founded Apple.

The release date of the Steve Jobs biopic that stars Ashton Kutcher has quietly been postponed. jOBS, which closed the Sundance Film Festival this year, had been set by Five Star Films and its distributor Open Road for April 19. It has moved off that date, and a new date has not been determined. Five Star made a service release deal with Open Road before the festival started, and the film’s backers were eager to release on the month marks the 37th anniversary of Jobs founding Apple.

The reason for the delay appears to be lack of time to prepare the films marketing and create a buzz around the film before its release. As soon as we hear more on a new release date, we will let you know. The movie which stars Ashton Kutcher in the role of Steve Jobs and Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak covers only a small part of the Apple and Jobs story from 1971-2001.
