Before Ashton Kutcher gets a chance to do his Steve Jobs impression for Hollywood, audiences will get to see the actual Jobs up on the big screen thanks to Magnolia Pictures. The company has picked up the U.S. rights to Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview, with plans to give it a limited theatrical release May 11 before rolling it out onto DVD and VOD later this summer. If that sounds vaguely familiar, perhaps it’s because the video has already hit theaters once before — Landmark Theaters dropped it in select locations for two days last fall.

Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview isn’t really a feature film in the traditional sense, but rather an unedited 70-minute interview with the late Apple co-founder. Filmmaker Robert X. Cringely sat down with Jobs in 1995 for a TV miniseries titled Triumph of the Nerds: The Rise of Accidental Empires, but only a small portion wound up being used for that project and the rest was assumed to be lost until just last year. Hit the jump for more details on the film, plus a brand-new teaser.

Sometimes death can make a famous person even more famous. When a music artist dies, their album sales go to the top of the charts. When an actor dies, their movies are all rented on Netflix. And when the billionaire CEO of the world’s most successful technology company dies, he, apparently, becomes a movie star.

Since the untimely death of Apple founder Steve Jobs in October at the age of 56, interviews and books about the entrepreneur have been in high demand.
