“Aaron Sorkin has thus far said relatively little about the Steve Jobs biopic he’s writing for Sony Pictures,” Chris Welch reports for The Verge. “But the acclaimed screenwriter finally let some details slip today at The Hero Summit, an event presented by Newsweek and The Daily Beast.”

“During an interview, Sorkin revealed that the movie will be comprised of three, 30-minute sections that each take place backstage in the moments immediately preceding some of Jobs’ most iconic keynotes,” Welch reports. “‘This entire movie is going to be three scenes and three scenes only that all take place in realtime,’ Sorkin said. ‘A half hour for you in the audience is the same as a half hour to a character on the screen.'”

Welch reports, “The three presentations that will serve as backdrops in the film will be the original Macintosh, the debut of NeXT, and the first-ever iPod reveal in 2001.”
