LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Magnolia Pictures has acquired
the U.S. rights to "Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview," and will
open the film in select theaters on May 11, with DVD and Video
on Demand releases following this summer.
The film, which was lensed by Robert Cringley in 1995 and
features Apple honcho Jobs discussing a wide range of topics
such as his early days, career battles and vision for the
future, saw limited special screenings at Landmark theaters
Parts of the interview had aired in a television special in
the mid-'90s, but most of the sit-down was shelved and assumed
to be lost over the subsequent 17 years.
Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles said the film will be
"enlightening and entertaining for anyone that's interested in
Jobs' legacy... It's a valuable piece of history that has
thankfully been rescued from obscurity."
Jobs died in Oct. 2011 at the age of 56.
