"JOBS" is a forthcoming biopic on late Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple. He died of pancreatic cancer in October 2011. He was 56.
“When I got the script, I found myself just turning through the pages like it was a 'Harry Potter' book. I couldn’t get enough of it," Gad said in a statement issued by PVR Pictures, which is releasing the film in India on Aug 16.
Talking about what he read of the late tech mastermind in the script, Gad said: “It was a side of Steve Jobs that I knew nothing about. My idea of Jobs was very much the media darling he became in the 1990s and later in the 2000s up until his untimely death.
"I was reading it going, ‘Oh my God, this is incredible! How come I never knew about any of this?’”
Gad was more than willing to be a part of "JOBS".
“I immediately called up my agent and said, ‘I have to be a part of this'.
