The task of writing a worthy script to depict the life of tech visionary Steve Jobs, is no easy feat. While he has been busy with his new HBO hit series “Newsroom”, Aaron Sorkin has been working on a Steve Jobs biopic of sorts for Sony Pictures. Sorkin’s plan for the film, as he shared at The Daily Beast Hero conference, will be structured around three 30-minute segments set behind the scenes before three of Apple’s biggest product launches to date– the Mac, the iPod and NeXT.

Sorkin envisions the scenes to play out in real time and it would put a microscope on the life of Jobs during three distinct phases of his life – introducing one of the most cutting edge technologies with his kit, getting his life back together after being forced out of the company and of course, launching the Mac.

We'll keep you posted as more details emerge on the untitled "Steve Jobs Project".

    I can see him retiring Wolverine after W3 but as stated - HJ is still RIPPED. He does some serious workouts to play Logan and has the body to prove it. If they cast someone younger to play him after W3 then they had better search long and hard because he is one tough act to follow as Logan!

    okay, i took the bait of the Teaser for the new Bond movie, and I am hooked. Bond seems to have a secret link to Spectre, This will be interesting. I love the way the new recycling of Bond stories have developed from the first Craig adaptation and reinventing of the role. Guess I am onboard to continue to be a person that has never missed a Bond movie. From when I first saw Dr. No and From Russia With Love on a double feature in the 60's as a teenager I have been hooked and still am.

    My hope would be that someday, Marvel Studios can reach an agreement to have him appear, at least as a cameo, in one of the Phase 3 films. Maybe as a possible recruit in the Infinity War against Thanos.
