Aaron Sorkin: Steve Jobs Biopic Will Consist of ‘Three Scenes’

During today’s portion of the Newsweek/Daily Beast Hero Summit in Washington D.C., Aaron Sorkin provided a tantalizing preview of the script structure he is relying on to adapt Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs biography.

Per a report by the publication’s TV critic Jace Lacob, here’s what Sorkin told Tina Brown:

“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 of the three scenes will run 30 minutes in length and Sorkin said they will be “all set right before three major product launches.”

Let the tech world debate begin as to whether or not Sorkin has chosen the right three product launches. They are the original 1984 Macintosh computer, the NeXT Cube in 1990 and the iPod in 2001. Sounds pretty good to us.
