    He is in talks. And I think this is wonderful. This will mark his second collabaration with Aaron Sorkin and Scott Rudin. And knowing that the first Jobs’ biopic was a flop and Aaron Sorkin being Aaron Sorkin the question is, will this have Oscar buzz like The Social Network did? And if so will it have as much potential as The Social Network did? I already want to watch this film. Will they get nominated again?

    Fincher is getting so boring.

    Setting itself up for neverending write-ups on how The Social Network was infinitely better. Fincher is one of my favorite directors and I appreciate Sorkin when his scripts are tightly directed, a la Moneyball and, again, The Social Network.

    I didn’t see the Ashton Kutcher biopic, but maybe this will work? Not sure, I want him to do more thrillers. He’s kind of a modern day Polanski (my ultimate favorite director), so yeah. Excited for Gone Girl.

    To me, Edward Norton should get a gig like this and win his overdue Oscar

    I know that veering into fiction worked well for The Social Network, but I hope that this one sticks more to the facts.

    The Ahton Kutcher one wasn’t bad but I honestly don’t feel that Jobs’ life was that interesting so they might have an issue making a really good script.

    This definitely seems too obvious of a film for Fincher to make. I’d rather he didn’t, Jobs doesn’t seem like an interesting subject. Then again, neither did Zuckerberg. Sorkin involvement is good. And, well, I’d see anything Fincher makes, so bring it on, I guess.

    But I would rather he did next Girl movie, or that 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea film.

    …and casted as Steve Jobs is Jesse Eisenberg! (not really, but if that really happened… lol)

    As long as they don’t cast Ashton Kutcher, that man can’t act to save his life.

    Hopefully the involvement of Fincher and Sorkin will ensure a better film that the Kutcher version.

    So…who plays Jobs?

    Info on the script structure:

    Sorkin has publicly said the Jobs biopic will be divided into three long scenes, each taking place backstage before one of Apple’s infamous product launches.

    “The first one being the Mac,” he told the Daily Beast. “The second one being NeXT, after he had left Apple. And the third one being the iPod.”

    “It’s a little like writing about the Beatles,” he added. “There are so many people out there that know him and revere him.”

    The sequels to ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’. It’s a trilogy.

    Fincher reportedly wants Christian Bale to star, and will only direct if Bale takes the role.

    Was hoping for Edward Norton. Oh well.

    I like that Norton suggestion.  He has not had a good role like that in a while.

    I could see Bale doing a good job, but he might object to not having to lose or gain weight for the role. I’m joking, but I actually can’t remember the last time that Bale was his actual weight in a role.
