A recently-discovered interview with Apple founder Steve Jobs is set to be released in cinemas later this month.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Magnolia pictures is set to release "Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview" in select US cities on 11 May.
Technology reporter Robert Cringely's 1995 interview with Jobs will be shown in its entirety in select Landmark Theater locations. Plans for a DVD and international release are said to be coming soon.
"It is an interview that reveals the burning passion of Steve Jobs, a passion that would go on to give us the iMac, the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad," said a Magnolia Pictures synopsis for the film.
The interview took place in 1995 while Jobs was running NeXT, a workstation manufacturer he opened following his 1985 ouster from Apple. The interview is said to cover everything from Jobs early days at Xerox to his vision for the future of technology.
Small portions of Jobs interview were used in a Channel 4 mini-series on the history of personal computing. The complete interview, however, was thought to be lost until director Paul Sen found a VHS copy of the taping in his garage.
Magnolia has plans to release the interview on DVD and video-on-demand markets in the US this summer. While no date has been set for international distribution, plans for a UK release are said to be coming soon.
The Cringley interview is not the only film on Jobs in development.
Actor Ashton Kutcher recently signed on to portray the Apple founder in an independently-produced biographical film.
