David Fincher is in early talks to direct the Steve Jobs biopic penned by his Social Network screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, Variety reports.
The other major player in the Social Network circle of friends, producer Scott Rudin, is also on-board.
Sorkin’s script is based on Walter Isaacson’s biography Steve Jobs, but the film is at this point still untitled.
The flick will reportedly be divided into three lengthy scenes, each one set behind the scenes of Apple’s product launches.
If the deal should go through, filming is expected to begin later this year.
So, start polishing those 2016 Oscars. Not for this film, of course. It’ll probably end up being passed over for some other Royal biopic too.
