Director David Fincher may reteam with writer Aaron Sorkin for 'Steve Jobs' filmDavid Fincher, the acclaimed director who was behind the camera for Aaron Sorkin's Academy Award winning "The Social Network," is said to be in talks to reteam for the film adaptation of Walter Isaacson's "Steve Jobs" biography.
Fincher is currently engaged in early talks with studio Sony Pictures Entertainment to direct the upcoming film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. If a deal is struck, Fincher would be reunited not only with Sorkin, but also with producer Scott Rudin, who also worked on "Social Network."
That film was loosely based on the true story of Facebook and its founder Mark Zuckerberg, though Sorkin's script took numerous liberties to deviate from events as they happened.
Other films by Fincher over his illustrious career include "Se7en," "Fight Club," "Zodiac, and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."
Sorkin reportedly finished his "Jobs" script in January. The screenwriter has indicated that the film will consist of scenes that take place before the unveilings of three key products: the original Mac, NeXT, and the iPod.
The upcoming movie will be the second attempt at a Steve Jobs feature after indie film "Jobs," the ill-received Ashton Kutcher vehicle released in 2013.
