We didn’t hear much for awhile about the upcoming biopic of Steve Jobs, which superstar screenwriter Aaron Sorkin was commissioned to write at some point last year.
But last week, Sorkin revealed some details about the form the new project will take, in an interview with The Daily Beast: The film, based on Walter Isaacson’s authorized biography, will consist of three long scenes, set in different times in Jobs’ career. The scenes will focus on the creation of the MacIntosh, the establishment of Apple successor company NeXT and the birth of the iPod.
No director or cast has been announced for the film, and its planned release timetable is unknown.
Sorkin also said in the interview that his HBO series The Newsroom, which rips storylines from the recent headlines, would not include anything about the David Petraeus scandal in its upcoming second season, because “the time line ends the day before.” That presumably means Season 2 will conclude with the presidential election.
