Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs Movie Script Is Complete
Although it could be years before the film arrives in theaters, acclaimed screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has “finished” the script for Sony Pictures Steve Jobs movie. While we don’t know who will direct or which intrepid soul will agree to portray Jobs, the film will play out in three acts.
“I hope I don’t get killed by the studio for giving too much away,” Sorkin told Daily Beast in Fall 2012, “but this entire movie is going to be three scenes, and three scenes only, that all take place in real time.”
For what it’s worth, at the time, Sorkin mentioned a number of seminal jobs keynote presentations — the original Mac, NeXT cube and iPod — though it isn’t yet known if any of these events will be portrayed in the Jobs movie.
And, now, Variety reports that Sorkin has finished the Jobs movie script. Again, it’s highly unlikely that the movie will arrive any time in the next year, but this important milestone — assuming the studio accepts it — has been passed.
Sorkin’s script is based, at least in part, on Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs (Amazon) authorized biography, which Sony Pictures purchased the rights to.
Can’t wait? Who would you like to see in the lead role in Sorkin’s Steve Jobs movie? Noah Wyle perhaps?
