Sony Seeks New Director for Steve Jobs Movie?

Sony Pictures is looking for another director for its Steve Jobs movie following aggressive demands by David Fincher for compensation and control of the project, according The Hollywood Reporter.

Fincher is said to be seeking a hefty $10 million up front in fees, as well as control over marketing, in negotiations with the studio. Sony allowed him considerable input into the marketing of the 2011 film The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, including honoring his request to use the tagline "The feel bad movie of Christmas" in its campaign. A source says Fincher also had the studio create metal, razor-blade-shaped one-sheet materials for the film that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to produce but were not suitable for display in theaters.

A source told the site that Fincher could possibly re-enter negotiations; however, the fee he is currently seeking is 'ridiculous'. “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,” said the source.

Fincher had been pushing for Christian Bale to play the late Steve Jobs. Steve Wozniak is currently signed on to consult and Aaron Sorkin is writing the screenplay based on the biography by Walter Isaacson.

Sony and Fincher's reps declined to comment.

Suck it baby douch. You don't even have a team to fight back. Show me your bright idea for idea for a movie compared to jobs a blushed blonde would possibly whine about, you'll need to take theatre class first before making a point like you got a film to fight back with. Who would rather spend time with a gimmick who jumps to conclusion over a smart ass. You sure make a pretty good analyst, I'm sure you'll learn how to do that after learning from movies. This was made to get us to understand how it began, where's samsungs movie, probably starts off when they suddenly start by copying apple of course, that will knock some reality in your myth. The sung-dung CEO has no choice since that's all he did for a living, who else is on the wannabe side, I'm sure that movie explains it all just like your mom.

You are making no sense whatsoever, what are you? more like, would there be a Director willing to waste his precious and valuable time in making a movie about Thief Jobs ?. The 1st Movie was a complete waste, no profit at all, so what makes wonder they will do any better a second time around. Who wants to see a movie about that Stupid Idiot, only You AppleTrash MTF. Wondering why no Director is coming forward to Direct that movie. Te title should be, "Sony it's having such a hard time in finding any Director that is willing to Direct Thief Jobs Movie" And You don't use a translator to post. Go take A ESL class first.
