Director David Fincher Won’t Direct Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs Biopic

It looks as if “The Social Network” director David Fincher will not be directing Sony’s Steve Jobs biopic, as the The Hollywood Reporter reports Sony thought Fincher’s asking price was too high.


The Hollywood Reporter, via MacRumors:

A source with ties to the studio says Fincher potentially could re-enter negotiations but that the fee he is seeking is “ridiculous,” adding, “You’re not doing Transformers here. You’re not doing Captain America. This is quality — it’s not screaming commerciality. He should be rewarded in success but not up front.”

Fincher was reportedly asking $10 million and control over the movie’s marketing campaign. Since we are talking Hollywood here, talks could continue between the two parties.

The author of the Jobs biopic, Aaron Sorkin previously worked with Fincher on The Social Network, which made $225 million worldwide, and snagged an Oscar for Sorkin for best adapted screenplay.
