Details of the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic have been revealed by its writer, Aaron Sorkin. Sorkin, who has previously penned the likes of The West Wing and The Social Network, has said that the film itself will centre around three scenes, set in real-time of 30 minutes each. The scenes themselves will be set backstage before three major Apple announcements. According to Newsweek CEO Baba Shetty, the three product launches featured in the film would be of the original Macintosh, NeXT and the iPod.

Sorkin also revealed a little about the writing process, saying that he’s striving to show what a character wants, rather than what a character is. This would certainly be interesting in the case of Steve Jobs, especially in the setting of backstage before a product launch – home to some of Apple’s most pivotal moments.
