Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs movie will feature just three backstage scenes from key product launches
Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs-biopic will consist of just three 30-minute scenes of the late Apple CEO presented in real-time, showing events backstage at major product launches.
Sorkin announced the script details at the Newsweek/Daily Beast's Hero Summit event on Thursday.
"That's the movie," he said, according to a tweet from the Beast's official account.
Like the definitive Walter Isaacson-authored biography of Jobs, which offered candid material from the tech guru, the scenes will likely shed a very real light on the late Apple CEO.
Many had expected the film would focus on the creative brainstorming behind hit products like the iPhone and iPad.
But, as Sorkin did with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in "The Social Network," Jobs' character will likely speak for himself more than the plot events will speak for him.
Jobs was a powerful and demanding force in the minutes leading up to long-anticipated unveilings of his key products, including the smartphone and tablet.
"No point in writing about someone unless they're flawed," Sorkin said, according to the summit's official Twitter handle.
