Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming Steve Jobs biopic is going to have a fairly unique layout – it’ll consist of only three scenes that will unfold in real time.
Talking with Newsweek, “The West Wing” creator and “The Social Network scribe revealed that “this entire movie is going to be three scenes, and three scenes only, that all take place in real time.”
All three thirty-minute scenes will be “set right before three major product launches.” Those three products? The original Macintosh computer in 1984, the NeXT Cube in 1990, and the first generation iPod in 2001.
Sorkin has been meeting with people who knew Jobs. Sorkin says: “I’ve been able to talk to these people who revere him in spite of the fact that he made all of them cry at one point or another. But he made all of them better at what they were doing.”
Scott Rudin, Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady are producing the presently untitled and uncast film.
