The forthcoming biopic on Apple founder Steve Jobs is to take place over just three scenes, according to its writer.

Aaron Sorkin, who is currently overseeing US drama 'The Newsroom' and won an Oscar for 'The Social Network', has revealed that the action will happen in 'real time'.

Each 30-minute scene will be set just before one of Apple's major product launches, the first being the original Mac computer in 1984, the NeXT Cube in 1990 and the iPod in 2001.

“I hope I don't get killed by the studio for giving too much away,” he told US website the Daily Beast, “but this entire movie is going to be three scenes, and three scenes only, that all take place in real time.”

Sorkin, who is using Walter Isaacson's authorised biography as source material, has met with many people who knew Jobs personally, adding: “I've been able to talk to these people who revere him in spite of the fact that he made all of them cry at one point or another. But he made all of them better at what they were doing.”

It's not yet known who will play Jobs himself, nor are there any details of when the project might hit screens.

But what is known is that it will go up against a rival production about the Apple creator, with Ashton Kutcher playing Jobs, directed by Joshua Michael Stern.
