David Fincher could be taking the reins on Sony's Steve Jobs biopic, according to reports.
The award-winning filmmaker is said to be in early talks to direct the as-yet-untitled film, based on Walter Isaacson's biography of the late Apple co-founder, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The 51-year-old would be reunited with Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and producer Scott Rudin, whom he previously collaborated with on The Social Network.
This would be the second film about Steve, following 2011's Jobs, which starred Ashton Kutcher as the visionary creator. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is involved as a consultant in this version.
Aaron has already finished the script, although no actors are attached as yet.
David, who last directed The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo for Sony, has completed work on the big-screen adaptation of Gillian Flynn's mystery thriller Gone Girl, with Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike in the lead roles.
The filmmaker behind The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, Seven and Fight Club is set to direct the US version of Channel 4's conspiracy thriller Utopia, which Gillian will write.
