The late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs (L) and American screenwriter and producer Aaron Sorkin (R)
Academy Award winning screenwriter and producer Aaron Sorkin has revealed the story structure of a biopic film on the late innovator Steve Jobs.
Sorkin had earlier announced that he was not planning to feature a straight biography and depict a film with the cradle-to-grave structure of a biography but he would like to screen three different periods of the Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ life.
Sorkin has planned the plot structure in three 30-minute scenes that will play out in real time, all set right before three major product launches.
He intends to “focus on a short period of time in Jobs’ life, something wholly unique in mind for the film’s structure,” which is mainly based on the book by Walter Isaacson.
The book was written based on more than 40 interviews with its subject conducted over two years as well as interviews with more than 100 family members, friends, adversaries, competitors and colleagues.
Steve Jobs, the billionaire and co-founder of the technology giant, Apple Inc., died at the age of 56, on 5 October, 2011, succumbing to pancreatic cancer.
Charlie Wilson's War
(2007), The Social Network
(2010), Moneyball (2011) and The Newsroom (2012) are some of Sorkin’s film experiences.
