Hey Sony! Pay David Fincher What He Wants to Direct Your Steve Jobs Movie

16 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Earlier this week it was announced that David Fincher was no longer attached to direct Sony Picture's Steve Jobs biopic. The script was written by Aaron Sorkin, and to have the two guys who brought us The Social Network develop this movie would have been a dream team of awesomeness. They would have delivered one hell of an incredible film.

So why isn't Fincher going to direct it anymore? Because he wanted $10 million up front in fees, as well as control of the marketing. The studio won't agree to that, so the director walked. Fincher is one hell of a talented individual, and the guy makes virtually perfect films. Knowing that he is going to deliver a high quality film that they know is going to be good, I say give it to him. The guy isn't going to let you down, and more importantly, he's not going to let the fans down either. »

Watch: David Fincher’s Gone Girl Trailer

16 April 2014 1:52 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

“I did not kill my wife. I am not a murderer.”

Following in the tradition of releasing trailers that are downright awesome, the first teaser for David Fincher’s latest film – Gone Girl, based on the best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn – has made its way online. And just like the trailers we glimpsed once upon a time for the likes of The Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, both of which went on to receive critical and commercial acclaim, Gone Girl’s minute and a half teaser is appropriately gripping and eerie – something akin to a work of art in itself, even.

The trailer is rendered in a series of characteristically Fincher-esque shots, then, backed by a bizarro world rendition of Charles Aznavour’s “She” (by Richard Butler), which evokes memories of that Social Network trailer and its cover of Radiohead’s “Creep. »

Sharon Stone Joins ‘American Ultra’

16 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hollywood heavyweight Sharon Stone has joined the cast of action comedy American Ultra.

Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) stars as Mike, a hapless, lazy stoner, happy with his boring life with girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart – Twilight). However, unknown to Mike and everyone around him he’s actually a secret agent. When his past flashes before his eyes the realities of the responsibility of his power surface, especially when he’s called in to support a deadly government operation. Co-starring Topher Grace (That ’70s Show), John Leguizamo (Kick-ass 2), Tony Hale (Arrested Development), Bill Pullman (Independence Day) and Walton Goggins (Django Unchained), Stone joins the cast as Victoria Lasseter.

With Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) directing and Max Landis (Chronicle) behind the script this could go either way – brilliantly witty and action-packed…or a little lacklustre. We’ll have to wait and see.

American Ultra is already in production. It currently has »

Beyond Fright: Gone Girl Trailer Looks Creepy, Eerily Familiar!

15 April 2014 6:16 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The debut trailer for Fox’s upcoming David Fincher-helmed Gone Girl has made its way online, and hot damn, does it look great. Personally, I’m a massive fan of Fincher’s stuff, and the score work that Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have done for Fincher’s last two films (The Social Network, which they won an Oscar for) and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (No Oscar, but a Grammy!) is quite the mood-music to write to. Revolving around a missing woman whose husband seems more and more suspect as time goes on, Gone Girl is based off the book by Gillian Flynn, who also wrote the screenplay. As if the plot, which feels eerily similar to the Scott Peterson case, isn’t enthralling enough, those people at Fox just had to throw in an excellent yet creepy cover of Elvis Costello’s “She” in there for good measure. »

Movie News: 'Apes' Toys in Action; David Fincher Drops 'Steve Jobs;' Philip Seymour Hoffman in 'God's Pocket' Trailer

15 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Even in repose, these articulated action figures by Neca, made to tie in with the July 11 release of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, look very fierce. Andy Serkis leads the apes as Caesar, while Jason Clarke, Keri Russell and Gary Oldman will represent the human race in the movie. [Neca via Collider]   Steve Jobs: David Fincher will not be directing Sony's upcoming big-screen adaptation of Walter Isaacson's biography Steve Jobs. He was in talks to helm the project, based on a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin, his collaborator on The Social Network, but discussions hit a snag -- possibly in regard to his payment and control over marketing -- and so it looks like both Fincher and Sony will go their separate ways.

Watch: Striking First Trailer for David Fincher's 'Gone Girl,' Who'll Direct Jobs Biopic?

15 April 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

After rolling out some footage at CinemaCon, David Fincher's "Gone Girl," starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, has a first trailer. In classic Fincher trailer fashion, the spot has an arresting song (a cover of Elvis Costello's "She" -- itself a cover of the Charles Aznavour original -- by Richard Butler of the Psychedelic Furs) playing throughout. To recap, "Gone Girl" is adapted by Gillian Flynn from her own bestselling thriller. Affleck stars as an all-American husband whose wife (Pike) goes missing -- foul play is seemingly involved -- and he's put in the hot seat as the number one suspect in her would-be murder. It arrives October 3, the exact same release date "The Social Network" had four years ago.  Meanwhile Fincher doesn't seem to be getting his wanted-for payday to direct Sony's Steve Jobs biopic, which is being adapted by "Social Network" Oscar-winner Aaron Sorkin from Walter Isaacson's bestselling biography. »

Fincher Exits Sony’s Steve Jobs Biopic

15 April 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

For a time it looked like Sony’s Steve Jobs biopic was going to be a bit of a Social Network reunion, but now that does not appear to be the case.

Aaron Sorkin, who won a Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for The Social Network, is writing the screenplay for the Steve Jobs flick, based on the book by Walter Isaacson. Director David Fincher, who directed The Social Network, was in negotiations with Sony to helm the biopic, but talks have ceased and it looks like Fincher is out.

Per a source at Sony Fincher’s demands were a little too… demanding. Apparently the Oscar nominated director wanted an upfront fee in the vicinity of $10 million, as well as control over casting and marketing.

The source also says Fincher could re-enter negotiations, but he’s going to have to back off a few things, namely the large upfront fee and control over marketing the film. »

David Fincher leaves Steve Jobs biopic after dispute over $10m payday

15 April 2014 1:42 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Social Network director exits Aaron Sorkin-scripted biopic over disagreements on upfront pay and creative control of the film's marketing

News: Christian Bale sought for Jobs biopic

News: Sorkin script based on three Apple product launches

David Fincher has left a high-profile biopic of the late Apple founder Steve Jobs after Sony Pictures turned down Fincher's alleged "aggressive" demands for $10m (£5.9m) in up-front wages and control of the marketing of the movie, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Fincher was named as a frontrunner to direct the as-yet untitled drama, which has been adapted by Aaron Sorkin from an official Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson. Sorkin and Fincher had worked together on the Oscar-winning 2010 biopic The Social Network, about the founding of Facebook.

Aaron Sorkin is still writing the Steve Jobs biopic. But his The Social Network partner David Fincher doesn't look like he's directing...

The reunion of The Social Network team - writer Aaron Sorkin, producer Scott Rudin and director David Fincher - looks like it's off. The trio were set to reunite to make the mooted biopic of the late Steve Jobs, which Sorkin is adapting from Walter Isaacson's biography of Jobs (which is well worth a read). However, The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news that Fincher is set to walk away from the project.

It seems quite specific as to the reasons why, and that in turn makes us wonder if they really are the main causes for Fincher's apparent departure. According to the report, it's Fincher's "aggressive demands for compensation and control" that have caused the problem. He's said »

'Gone Girl' trailer: Return to Oscars for Ben Affleck and David Fincher?

14 April 2014 5:54 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Will Ben Affleck and David Fincher make a return to the Oscars next year? -Break- They could be contenders again for one of 2014's most anticipated films, "Gone Girl," based on the bestselling novel by Gillian Flynn, who also penned the screenplay. It opens on October 3, the same time of year that Fincher's "The Social Network" (2010) and Affleck's "Argo" (2012) opened before they went on to win multiple Oscars. Affleck is looking to win a third Oscar -- his first for acting following wins for Best Original Screenplay ("Good Will Hunting," 1997) and Best Picture ("Argo," 2012). However, Fincher is still in search of his first; he earned directing bids for "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (2008) and "Social Network" (2010), losing the first to Danny Boyle ("Slumdog Millionaire") and the second to "The King's Speech" helmer Tom Hooper.
