I can't see a film about Steve Jobs documenting his life, nor the rise of Apple. Those are documentaries. I can see the story being the Apple as a start up and ending either at his firing from Apple, or at his return to Apple. Ending on his return keynote would make sense. Everything after that is dramatically boring, or else the drama is ongoing. e.g. Apple v Google
I can't see a film about any of it. Too much story that would have be compressed to be honest.
Now a mini series, sure. I could see as much as 12 hours being pulled from this vast tale. They could do it as a half season mega mini series over 12 weeks, perhaps airing from January to April. Heck they could probably get Apple to buy ad time for the latest iPad etc. Who knows, perhaps they could get Apple, Pixar and a handful of other companies to buy all the ad time to keep the number of ads low and avoid any 'conflicting' companies from getting time to hawk their wares. No Android phones, Dell computers or t-mobile service mentioned. They could perhaps do it as part biopic and part documentary with interviews with the real players helping to bridge the gaps.
If done right it would be a memorial to the man that few would argue should have waited another decade. I haven't been impressed with Sorkin's movies but his TV was tight. If he was doing this as a tv gig I could get behind it.
