Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has been working on a big-budget Steve Jobs biopic for awhile now. Not only will it have
way less zero Ashton Kutcher, but it will be funded by Sony and probably go down as the Jobs movie of record.
Sorkin was confirmed to write the script back 2012, but there’s been little news out of the project since then. Today it was reported that the script has finally been turned into Sony, which means that production is just around the corner.
Part of the reason the movie has gotten a slow start is probably because Sorkin has been busy with writing The Newsroom, HBO’s show that everyone loves to hate, which has been renewed for a third and final season.
Back in 2012, Sorkin said the movie will be structured as three 30-minute acts, each of which will play out in real time. Each act will show Jobs backstage at a different Apple keynote. The story could have certainly changed since then, but Sorkin’s take should definitely be interesting. Now it’s time to place your bets on casting!
