‘The Social Network’ Part II? Well, not exactly, but the biopic on Steve Jobs may just bring together Aaron Sorkin, who wrote the Facebook movie and David Fincher, who directed it.
Aaron Sorkin and David Fincher have already taken on one technological success — why not another? The famed director is reportedly in talks to direct the Sony film all about Steve Jobs, written by Sorkin.
Aaron Sorking & David Fincher Take On Steve Jobs?
Walter Isaacson wrote the biography of the Apple co-founder that is now being transformed into a film, and Fincher is a front runner to direct it, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
It would be a comfortable atmosphere for the famed director to join. Along with Sorkin, he’d be joining The Social Network‘s producers Soctt Rudin, Guymon Casady and Mark Gordon.
The film has been in the works since Jobs’ death in 2011. While Sorkin had been a little busy with The Newsroom, he got to work on the script in 2012 — it is now finished. They have not yet landed any leading actors to take on the role of Jobs (clearly Ashton Kutcher is already taken), but Jobs’ partner Steve Wozniak will join to consult.
Fincher has yet to comment on the report, but has been quite the busy guy — and likes working again with people he had a good time with. He just finished shooting Gone Girl, the film based on the novel by Gillian Flynn and just released season two of House of Cards. Gillian and Fincher teamed up again for HBO’s Utopia.
What do you think of Fincher as the director of the Steve Jobs biopic? Do you think it’s a good fit? Let us know!
