Apple quivers over scandalous new biopic movie on the life of Steve Jobs

The same screenwrite for The Social Network wrote the script for Steve Jobs.

Although the late Steve Jobs was not known to be perfect and flawless, he was certainly not the most villainous employer the world had ever known. However, the latest trailer for the new film about Job's life showcased him as a jerk, arrogant throwing tantrums, worrying insiders from Apple. Set to be released in October, the film will probably burn anything good left about the legendary man, whether the truth is twisted or not.

Highlights

MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) - Venture Beat describes the two-minute trailer of the film titled, "Steve Jobs," as depicting him humiliating Apple employees, showing the estrangement with co-founder Steve Wozniak and denying paternity to daughter, Liza. Michael Fassbender was cast to play the very negative side of the Apple legend, with the script written by Aaron Sorkin - based on the biography written by Walter Isaacson.

Coming from the same scriptwriter for the movie The Social Network, about Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the storyline is unsurprising, but also utterly interesting and controversial.

Sorkin depicted the young social media company founder as misogynistic. As writer Chris O'Brien pointed out, he may have penned the life of Zuckerberg as sad due to attitude problems over rejections and chunks of money. The movie gained a lot of attention despite, or due to, some things overlooked in order to solely focus on the negative aspects of Zuckerberg.

Now, Apple is worried that the upcoming film may pull away every remaining strand they have of their founder and the company. Apple campaigned, earlier this year, over the concentration of the Isaacson version of Steve Jobs for the book, claiming that it was too much concentrated on his flaws and the alleged bad temper.

The company was pushing for the book, written by journalists Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli, called, "Becoming Steve Jobs." According to Apple, that book offered the complete picture with his flaws, kindness and championship of the company for a second time.
