Aaron Sorkin's upcoming Steve Jobs biopic will consist of just three scenes, the screenwriter has revealed.

Oscar-winner Aaron is making a highly-anticipated film based on the Apple co-founder, who died in October 2011.

And according to the Hollywood Reporter, Aaron revealed at Newsweek and The Daily Beast's Hero Summit: "I hope I don't get killed by the studio for giving too much away, but this entire movie is going to be three scenes, and three scenes only, that all take place in real time."

Aaron said the scenes will each last 30 minutes and are "all set right before three major product launches".

He also revealed he wants the movie to end with the text or voiceover of the quote, "Here's to the crazy ones," from Apple's famous Think Different TV ad campaign from 1997.

He added: "If I can earn that ending then I'll have written the movie that I want to write."

No casting for the film has been announced.

Meanwhile, another biopic on Jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher, is currently in post-production.
