David Fincher's demands for creative control were reportedly too extreme for Sony Pictures and now the studio and Aaron Sorkin are looking for a new director to helm his "Steve Jobs" biopic. A new name has been tossed in the mix and Academy Award winner Danny Boyle is now in talks to helm the tech genius tale.
Boyle has tackled a variety of different subject matters and is a class act when it comes to Hollywood directors. His diverse work includes such films as "Slumdog Millionaire", "Sunshine", "28 Days Later" and the more recent "Trance".
In addition to a new director, there is now a new name being eyed for the role of Jobs. The always spectacular Leonardo DiCaprio is reportedly in talks, which would mark a reuniting between him and his "The Beach" director, Boyle. Christian Bale was the original hope to play the lead but his name has seemingly been dropped out along with Fincher's exodus.
DiCaprio and Boyle are both extremely talented and it would be interesting to see their take on the subject matter. Not to mention, we certainly know DiCaprio can transform in age and demeanor, as seen in "J. Edgar".
Sorkin has written the script to focus on three different chapters in the tech guru's life. Each chapter focuses on one of the launches of one of the world-changing Apple product launches.
