The Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher which was set to make its big screen debut on April 19 has now been delayed. According to a report by Deadline, the film will no longer arrive on April 19 and no new date has been announced yet either.
The Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher is set to make its nationwide movie theater premier on April 19 according to The Hollywood Reporter. It also claims that the date of release coincides with the 37th anniversary of the founding of Apple however that date appears to be incorrect as it is widely thought that Apple was founded on April 1 1976.
Aaron Sorkin, who is writing the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, revealed some details of the film while speaking at The Daily Beast’s Hero Summit. The film will take place over three scenes, each thirty minutes long, and all told in real time. Each scene will be backstage at a different product launch, the original Macintosh, the NeXT cube, and the iPod.
Sony has hired Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak to advise on its upcoming film based on the book Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacsson. Woz will be there to consult on Jobs and on technical aspects of computers. Sony has already hired Aaron Sorkin to write the film and he was also responsible for the recent film based on Facebook, The Social Network as well as television's The West Wing. Unfortunately this project does not seem that straight forward for Sorkin.
