- SONY’S UNTITLED STEVE JOBS FILM
Columbia Pictures' upcoming biopic Steve Jobs is already taking on some very interesting dimensions thanks to screenwriter Aaron Sorkin who, today, revealed to The Daily Beast details of his unconventional approach to the story.
"This entire movie is going to be three scenes," Sorkin explains, "and three scenes only. That all take place in real time… There will be no time cuts and each will 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."
"I don't know if you remember the ad campaign he did," Sorkin continues. "It was the 'Think Different' campaign. 'Here's to the crazy ones.' That's how it began. If I can end the movie with that text and that voice over... If I can earn that ending, then I will have written the movie that I wanted to write."
In my opinion Apple’s think different marketing campaign, has to go down as the top campaign in history. That ad is truly something special.
I love that Sorkin is doing something that’s unconcventional for the film, I feel its going to be something that will truly celebrate Steve Jobs, a man that has always gone against the grain. I think Sorkin is truly writing a film that will be quite special, but he will need a director to bring his vision to the big screen without corrupting it.
Personally I would love to see David Fincher tackle Sorkin’s script as this just feels like the sort of film that’s right up his alley. Not to mention the fact that Sorkin worked with Fincher on The Social Network, which was a brilliant film.
