Aaron Sorkin Finishes Script for Sony's Steve Jobs Biopic

Aaron Sorkin Finishes Script for Sony's Steve Jobs Biopic

Sony's long-planned Steve Jobs biopic is once again on its way.

According to Variety, Aaron Sorkin has submitted the script for the film, which he's been attached to pen since 2012.

In November 2012, he revealed the entire film will be made of only three scenes.

"I hope I don't get killed by the studio for giving too much away," Sorkin said, "but this entire movie is going to be three scenes, and three scenes only, that all take place in real time."

Each scene will be based in 'real time' and last approximately 30 minutes each, he said. Each scene will also coincide with a signifcant product launch for Jobs and his mega-brand Apple. Those product scenes include the original launch of the Macintosh computer in 1984, the NeXT Cube in 1990, and the original iPod which debuted in 2001.

As of now, it's not clear if Sorkin's final script for the film will still stick to this format.

Sorkin has met with many influential people in Jobs' life, including Steve Wozniak, the cofounder of Apple, The Los Angeles Times reported.

"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," he said. "But he made all of them better at what they were doing."

Pre-production is well underway on the still untitled film, though no casting has been set. Sorkin's flick is produced by Scott Rudin, Mark Gordon, and Guymon Casady.
