David Fincher Will Not Direct Aaron Sorkin's STEVE JOBS Biopic

By Amirose Eisenbach April 15, 2014

In other David Fincher news, the director has reportedly pulled himself out of the running for Aaron Sorkin's "Steve Jobs" biopic. Fincher set a stipulation that he would only direct if Christian Bale were to play the infamous tech genius. Now, new details about other troubles in paradise are being reported.

THR is stating that Fincher demanded $10 million upfront and full control over marketing of the production. Add that with his Bale addendum and perhaps it was just too much control for Fincher to have over Sony Pictures.

Sorkin and Fincher made magic together on "The Social Network". I was really looking forward to seeing what the two could come up with for this project but now pressure is even higher, as Sony has to find a worthy successor to take over.

Sorkin informed us a few months ago what his film will focus on. He stated, "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. Real time is when a half hour for you in the audience is the same as a half hour for the character on the screen, there will be no time cuts and each will take place before a product launch. Backstage before a product launch. The first one being the Mac, the second one being NeXT after he had left Apple and the third one being the iPod."

Who do you think should direct this project? Let us know in the comments section below!
