Boyle, who directed "The Beach", wants to reteam with Leonardo DiCaprio as Steve Jobs.
Moving fast to replace David Fincher on its highly anticipated Steve Jobs movie, Sony Pictures is in talks with Danny Boyle to direct the biopic of the late Apple Computer co-founder. Boyle is said to have approached Leonardo DiCaprio to star.
Sony had originally considered David Fincher to direct the project; however, talks reportedly faltered due to Fincher's aggressive demands for compensation and control. Fincher wanted Christian Bale to play Jobs.
The deal has not been finalized and DiCaprio has already committed to star in Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s thriller The Revenant.
