Aaron Sorkin has revealed more of how he is approaching the film
Writing duties for the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic have fallen to Aaron Sorkin, who has been behind films such as The Social Network. In the past, we have been without details, other than rumors of David Fincher, Christian Bale, and even Leonardo DiCaprio being on board, but now we know how Sorkin himself is viewing the goal of the film.
According to Sorkin, Steve Jobs was a very complicated person, with different aspects of his personality that made him both the hero and antihero of his own life story. “A fascinating guy surrounded by fascinating people,” Jobs has a lot to show the world when it is handled properly, so his public persona as well as his private relationships will be on full display here.
Without giving away too much, he wanted to stress that he is approaching this differently than many biopics have covered their subject matter in the past. It will be centering around three acts that all take place at various Apple launches, which stand as mile markers to the life story of Steve Jobs.
The current rumor is that David Boyle will now be taking over directing duties after David Fincher left citing differences with the studio over marketing and payment. We’ll have to wait for more official word, though, before production actually begins.
