Steve Jobs Film To Have Only Three Scenes, Says Writer Aaron Sorkin
The much anticipated Steve Jobs biopic, which will tell the story of the late Apple co-founder, will comprise of just three scenes, writer Aaron Sorkin has confirmed.
"I'm meeting with all the people in Steve's life now, from [Apple co-founder] Wozniak to all the people who were around for the Macintosh," Mr Sorkin said in a video posted online by The Daily Beast news site. "So I've been able to meet these people who revere him in spite of the fact he made all of them cry at one point or another, but he made all of them better at what they were doing." The three scenes for the movie will each set backstage immediately before a product launch. He said that every half hour that passed in the on-screen characters' lives would last 30 minutes of the audience's time. He also signalled that there would be one further element at the end of the film: a version of Apple's first Think Different television advert. "If I can end the movie with that text, with that voiceover - 'here's to the crazy ones' - if I can earn that ending then I'll have written the movie I want to write," Mr Sorkin said.
If that sounds a bit wacky for you, don't worry. Sorkin was the talent behind the Social Network film, which saw the rise, fall and rise again of Facebook and its creator, Mark Zuckerberg.
