Despite the presence of “jOBS” on the Netflix home page, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and director David Fincher still seem to think there’s room in the cinemasphere for at least one more version of the Steve Jobs story.
Unlike the rather unimaginatively-structured “jOBS”, released early 2013, the “Newsroom” scribe has a rather cool plan for his movie : It’d be made-up of just three 30-minute sequences.
In other words, while you mightn’t get an exhausting and comprehensive back-story on the Apple founder, you would get a nifty up-close into-the-nostril, astute look into what made the man tick.
David Fincher is in early talks to direct the movie.
“I hope I don’t get killed by the studio for giving too much away,” Sorkin told The Daily Beast in 2012, “but this entire movie is going to be three scenes, and three scenes only, that all take place in real time.”
Real time, Sorkin said, “is when a half hour for you in the audience is the same as a half hour for the character on the screen. There will be no time cuts. Each of these three scenes is going to take place before a product launch—backstage before a product launch. The first one being the Mac, the second one being NeXT (after he had left Apple), and the third one being the iPod.”
