We had scooped first that Open Road picked up the indie pic and eyed an April spot — the month marks the 37th anniversary of Jobs founding Apple. The Five Star Feature Film movie, directed by Joshua Michael Stern and written by Matthew Whiteley, details the major moments and defining characters that influenced Jobs covering the years 1971-2001.
