Back in May we learned that Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing, The Newsroom and screenwriter of The Social Network would be the one to pen Sony Pictures’ Steve Jobs biopic, based (closely or loosely, we’re not sure) on Walter Isaacson’s bestseller Steve Jobs. And ever since, we’ve been filling in the puzzle with pieces directly from Sorkin himself, whenever he decides to speak about the upcoming project.

Today, we learn another interesting detail about the upcoming film. Speaking at Newsweek/The Daily Beast’s Hero Summit, Sorkin tipped the exact structure of the film. Apparently, it will be divided up into three 30-minute scenes, each taking place backstage before one of Apple’s famous product launches.

From The Daily Beast’s Twitter account:

A couple of things: First, that would suggest that the film is only going to be about 90-minutes long. Second, it looks like we’re in for a flashback-heavy movie it appears that the film will take place in real time.

Sorkin has previously said that his film was going to stray from the traditional “cradle-to-grave” structure of most biopics and he was instead “going to identify the point of friction that appeals to [him] and dramatize that.”

He also knows that writing a biopic about a figure as iconic as Jobs has its pitfalls. He previously likened it to writing about The Beatles, saying that so many people already have strong opinions about Jobs, he has to be careful to navigate the “minefield of disappointment.”
