Fincher is in early talks to helm the untitled film based on Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography of the Apple co-founder, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. If a deal comes together, the film would reunite the director with Oscar-winning Social Network writer Aaron Sorkin, who recently finished the adaptation, and Social Network producer Scott Rudin. Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady also are producing.
Fincher is reportedly a picky director who can go years between film projects. He last directed The Girl With the Dragon Tattooin 2011 and recently finished shooting Gone Girl. Fincher is also the executive producer of House of Cards.
Sorkin has revealed that the movie will consist of just three scenes which are thought to take place before the Mac, NeXT, and iPod product launches.
