Sorkin's Steve Jobs Bio Pic to Consist of Only Three Scenes

At Newsweek and The Daily Beast's Hero Summit on Thursday, director Aaron Sorkin revealed a bit of a bomb in regards to his upcoming Steve Jobs bio-pic: the entire film wil 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.

In addition, 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.
