Steve Jobs film to have unusual 'real time' structure
The film based on life of Apple's late visionary co-founder Steve Jobs will have an unusual 'real time' structure, the movie's screenwriter has revealed.
Aaron Sorkin, who won an Oscar for Facebook film The Social Network, said that he wanted the film to consist of three 30-minute scenes, each of which would show in real-time the build-up to a major product launch.
The film is intended to be an adaptation of Walter Isaacson's official biography of Steve Jobs.
Sorkin, however, told the Daily Beast that he wanted to take a more unorthodox approach, rather than simply telling the Apple founder's story chronologically.
"This entire movie is going to be three scenes and three scenes only. That all take place in real time," the Telegraph quoted him, as saying.
"There will be no time cuts and each will take place before a product launch. Backstage before a product launch. The first one being the Mac, the second one being NeXT, after he had left Apple. And the third one being the iPod," he added.
The Sorkin film, which is being made by Sony Pictures, is not the only Jobs biopic in production.
A rival film starring Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs is being made by an independent studio and is likely to be released first.
