Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs biopic will comprise just three scenes, each 30 minutes long and set before a different product launch

Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs biopic will comprise just three scenes.

The 'Social Network' screenwriter is working on a movie about the life of the Apple co-founder and plans to employ an unusual narrative structure.

According to the Daily Beast's twitter page, Aaron said: "Each of the three 30 minute scenes in the Steve Jobs movie will take place backstage before a product launch. That's the movie."

It is believed that the scenes will be set at the launches of the Mac, the NeXT and the iPod.

They will be shot in real time, following Steve as he prepares himself to make keynote speeches.

There is as yet no director or actor attached to star in the project, and a release date has yet to be finalised.

Aaron's movie isn't the only biopic of the late technology mogul in the pipeline.

Ashton Kutcher recently wrapped filming on 'Jobs: Get Inspired'.

The film follows the Apple corporation from 1971 to 2000, when Steve became the full time CEO of Apple for a second time.

Work had been carried out on the script ever since Steve formally stepped down from the company last August, due to ill health. He then passed away in October from pancreatic cancer.
