More Problems With Sony’s Steve Jobs Biopic

David Fincher is one of the directors who is known for demanding control, something that should be understood in a movie about the founder of Apple. Unfortunately, it seems as though the studio has had enough and he has now backed out of the director’s chair.

This comes in a report from Apple Balla in which a source claims that Fincher was asking for complete control of the market of the film, in addition to wanting $10 million up front. The source claimed that the studio wasn’t willing to do the up front payment because this isn’t a sure commercial success like many of the other movies that they have produced in the past.

Fincher’s movies are known for being cult classics. Movies like Fight Club and Se7en weren’t financial successes at the theaters, and problems with the marketing for Girl with the Dragon Tattoo further strained the relationship that he has with the studio.

What kind of release date, or any information at all, we can expect on the Walter Isaacson sourced biopic remains to be seen unfortunately. After spending hundreds of thousands on promotional materials that were rejected, the studio is already behind on production. Aaron Sorkin is still in charge of the script and has been mum on details, but the job of finding a new director is one that could take some time. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available about the future of this project.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
