Aaron Sorkin Reveals How His Steve Jobs Biopic Will Work
Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin has revealed how he’ll bring the life story of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs to the big screen in a biopic planned by Sony. (This is a different film from jOBS, an indie shot this year with Ashton Kutcher in the title role.)
The project, officially announced this past May, is an adaptation of journalist Walter Isaacson’s best seller titled Steve Jobs.
In a chat with The Daily Beast, Sorkin said, “I hope I don’t get killed by the studio for giving too much away, but this entire movie is going to be three scenes, and three scenes only, that all take place in real time.”
The three scenes will each take place backstage before a product launch. The first one will be for the Mac, the second for NeXT, and the third and final one will be for the iPod. And the film’s final line will be a nod to an Apple ad campaign: “Here’s to the crazy ones.”
