Coming Soon: The Other Jobs Biopic

After seeing the surprisingly good first Steve Jobs biopic by “Jobs,” directed by Joshua Michael Stern and starring Ashton Kutcher as the iconic tech guru, I am waiting for Aaron Sorkin's take on Jobs' life. This will be based on Isaac's brilliant biography on the Apple founder. Steve Wozniak who is almost a minor character in Stern's movie is consulting on the Sorkin version. Aaron already revealed that his plan is to focus on the minutes leading up to the launch of a Macintosh computer; an event during Mr Job's time at Next Computer - possibly 1998's launch of the system in San Francisco; and the unveiling of an iPod. He intends to write just three scenes for the movie, each set backstage immediately before a product launch and said that every half hour that passed in the on-screen characters' lives would last 30 minutes of the audience's time. Most probably his movie will be totally different from the on I saw ten days ago in New York. Not just better. Different.
