Steve Jobs Movie Gets Sold; Brad and Angelina Not on Parrot Cay


Some afternoon updates: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are not Parrot Cay and didn’t get married there. I spoke to a manager at the Turks and Caicos island resort, who says that “they’re not here.” I believe her. Parrot Cay, where it’s rich rich rich, is also small small small. You have to take a small boat there from T&C. It’s unlikely that the Jolie-Pitt nuptials could be accommodated. Also, Pitt’s bff, George Clooney, has been in Mexico over the holiday as a guest some resort owner who’s gotten a lot of publicity out of it.

Meanwhile, the Ashton Kutcher movie about Steve Jobs, called “jOBS,” has found a distributor. Open Road picked up the film, which also closes Sundance this year. (That’s not a great spot, btw. If “Jobs” were terrific, it would be playing on the first weekend.) Open Road recently distributed the very good but smallish “End of Watch” with Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena. Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine co-star in “jOBS.” The movie opens on April 13th.

One last thing about Brad and Angelina: if that story had been true about their Christmas Day wedding, People magazine would already have an issue on the stands with exclusive pictures. Where Brangelina goes, People is there, with an open wallet.
