Steve Jobs bit starts at 22:30
Aaron Sorkin, the screenwriter behind the upcoming Steve Jobs film, explained today that his entire movie would consist of only three scenes. Each scene will be 30 minutes long and will follow Jobs backstage just before the unveiling of the Mac, NeXT, and the original iPod.
Sorkin’s movie is backed by Sony and not much else is known about the picture. “The West Wing” writer took the job shortly after Jobs’ death, and he had been asked by Jobs personally to write for Pixar in the past.
Sorkin said of the Jobs biopic assignment, “It is like writing about the Beatles” and has yet to pick an actor to portray Jobs.
This project is unrelated to the one by Inferno Entertainment that stars Ashton Kutcher and is showing now at Cannes.
