Contract disputes got in the way...
Scratch the idea of David Fincher taking the helm of Sony's Steve Jobs biopic. According to THR, Fincher has left the project after contract disputes came into play. As you may recall, Fincher was in talks to helm the project but was reportedly only interested in taking it on if Christian Bale played the Apple co-founder.
Sony's project is based on Walter Isaacson's best-selling, authorized biography, with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak serving as a consultant. Ashton Kutcher starred as Jobs in an unrelated biopic last year. No word on who may replace Fincher yet.
