20 Nov – While moviegoers around the world are waiting patiently watch Steve Jobs' larger-than-life story on the big screen, Academy and Emmy award-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin recently thrown some tidbits by revealing that his unique approach to Jobs' biographical feature film: the film will be depicted in just three scenes, according to Total Film.
"I hope I don't get killed for giving too much away. This entire movie is going to be three scenes and three scenes only," he said.
In addition, the New York-born screenwriter insisted that each of the three scenes would be presented in 'real time'. In another words, the 'real time' concept means that a half-hour for the audience is the same as 30 minutes for the character on the screen, with no time cuts.
Each of the three scenes will be set backstage before a particular product launch, divided into three different landmark stages of Jobs' illustrious career, beginning with the late American entrepreneur's introduction of the original Mac in 1984, follow by the launching of NeXT, the start-up Jobs created after being booted out of Apple as a result of the power struggle between the board directors in 1985 and finally the iPod, a stunning technological product that brought him back to the computer and consumer electronics field.
In order to maintain the strength and credibility of his story, Sorkin had been meeting key individuals from Jobs' life, including Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
"I've been able to talk to these people who revere him in spite of the fact that he made all of them cry at one point or another. But he made all of them better at what they were doing," said Sorkin.
Moreover, Sorkin is planning to include the line "Here's to the crazy ones" from Apple's famous 1997 Think Different ad campaign at the end of the film.
"If I can earn that ending then I'll have written the movie that I want to write," he said.
The Jobs' biopic is set to be released in 2013.
