Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs Movie Will Just Be Three Really Long Scenes


The Steve Jobs film Aaron Sorkin is doing still doesn't have a director or star attached, but it does have a structure that's unique for more than just not being built upon a foundation of Kutcher.

Speaking to The Daily Beast, Sorkin revealed that his film will mirror the haughty minimalism of Apple's products, taking place over just three scenes, all of which will occur backstage prior to one of Jobs's big product launches. Said Sorkin (via):

"[T]his entire movie is going to be three scenes, and three scenes only, that all take place in real time... 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."

Continuing, Sorkin then totally spoilered the ending, which will not be Jobs weakly muttering, "Let's walk and talk... then die...":

"I don't know if you remember the ad campaign he did. It was the 'Think Different' campaign. 'Here's to the crazy ones.' That's how it began. If I can end the movie with that text and that voice over... If I can earn that ending, then I will have written the movie that I wanted to write."

Sounds pretty solid, Sorkin. But have you seen the ending Kutcher's films have earned?
