Christian Bale Cast In Steve Jobs Biopic

UPDATE : Bloomberg has talked to a highly-placed source (one Aaron Sorkin ), who confirms Bale is aboard. “We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale ,” Sorkin says. “He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting.” You can see him use an extended sports metaphor in the Bloomberg video here. But we sort of wish he'd announced it like this. He was talked about back when David Fincher was considering directing the film, and it would appear that Sony is still interested in Christian Bale. The actor is now in talks for the Steve Jobs biopic that the studio is looking to make. Danny Boyle remains in the director’s chair for the film, which Aaron Sorkin has been busy writing. Sorkin’s script, which is based on Walter Isaacson’s bestselling authorised biography of the man, focuses on three big moments in Jobs’ corporate life, including the launch of the Mac, the NeXT (which was introduced after he was removed from the company) and the

Gone Girl Review: Crafty, Smart Thriller is Just Too Long

Gone Girl bubbles with a sexualized psychosis that's a bit too long for our bladders. In Director David Fincher's Gone Girl , Nick (Ben Affleck) and Amy (Rosamund Pike) are a couple in deep trouble. After five years of marriage, they seem further apart than ever as both their careers and personal lives have dried up. All of that changes when Nick returns home to find his wife has disappeared, leading police to eventually suspect him. They have their reasons, and soon evidence begins to pile up that not even Nick's attorney Tanner Bolt (Tyler Perry) can overcome. But Amy is not who she appears, and as Nick, Tanner, and Nick's sister (Carrie Coon) begin to put the pieces together, it's clear that no one is prepared for what is coming. Based closely to the 2012 best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn (who also wrote the screenplay), Gone Girl is a deeply disturbing tale of lies and deceit with plenty of character drama and twists to satisfy just about eve

David Fincher To Direct "Utopia" For HBO

Out and about plugging his latest film, Gone Girl , David Fincher has also been talking up his plans – announced earlier this year – to produce an adaptation of Channel 4’s conspiracy series Utopia . He’ll be even more involved than we thought, as he’s aiming to direct all the episodes of the HBO version’s first season. Utopia , in case you didn’t see the Channel 4 original, set things in motion with the discovery of a manuscript for a legendary graphic novel known as The Utopia Experiments , long shrouded in mystery. When a small group of previously unconnected people unite in their shared interest, things take a much darker turn. Because they are by no means the only ones interested in the manuscript. Targeted swiftly and relentlessly by a murderous organisation known as The Network, the terrified group are left with only one option if they want to survive: they have to run. “I like the characters – I love Dennis Kelly’s honesty and affinity for the nerds,” Fincher tells Th

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For #GONEGIRL In Las Vegas

Win Tickets To An Advance For GONE GIRL on Thursday, October 2nd at 7:00PM in Las Vegas. From the tour de force thriller that became a bestselling must-read comes David Fincher’s screen version of Gone Girl, a wild ride through our modern media culture and down into the deep, dark fault lines of an American marriage – in all its unreliable promises, inescapable deceits and pitch-black comedy. The couple at the center of the story – former New York writer Nick Dunne and his formerly “cool girl” wife Amy, now trying to make ends meet in the mid-recession Midwest – have all the sinuous outer contours of contemporary marital bliss. But on the occasion of their 5th wedding anniversary, Amy goes missing -- and those contours crack into a maze of fissures. Nick becomes the prime suspect, shrouded in a fog of suspicious behavior. Amy becomes the vaunted object of a media frenzy as the search for her, dead or alive, plays out before the eyes of a world thirsting for revelations.

David Fincher Talks Star Wars: Episode VII

J.J. Abrams is the man responsible for bringing Star Wars back to cinematic life, but there was a time where that might not have been the case. Director David Fincher has revealed that he was, at one point, talking to Lucasfilm about directing Star Wars: Episode VII . ”I talked to [Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy] about it, but I think that it’s a different thing from... I don’t know what Disney-Lucasfilm will be like,” the Gone Girl director told Total Film in a recent interview. “It’s tricky… My favorite is The Empire Strikes Back. If I said, 'I want to do something more like that,' then I'm sure the people paying for it would be like, 'No! You can't do that! We want it like the other one with all the creatures!’” He went on to say that he saw Star Wars as “the story of two slaves [C-3PO and R2-D2] who go from owner to owner, witnessing their masters' folly, the ultimate folly of man… I thought it was an interesting idea in the first two, but i

Could Danny Boyle & Leonardo DiCaprio Team Up To Make Steve Jobs Movie

Moving fast to replace David Fincher on its highly anticipated Steve Jobs movie , Sony Pictures is in talks with Danny Boyle to direct the biopic of the late Apple Computer co-founder. Boyle is said to have approached Leonardo DiCaprio to star. As The Hollywood Reporter revealed earlier this month, Fincher fell out of the project due to his aggressive demands for compensation and control. Fincher had wanted Christian Bale for the title role, though the actor was not signed. The film is to be produced by Scott Rudin and written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), based on the best-selling biography of Jobs by Walter Isaacson. The Jobs film could mark a reteaming of DiCaprio and Boyle, the star and director, respectively, of 2000's The Beach. Neither has previously worked with Sorkin. The departure of Fincher dashed hopes of reuniting the team behind Social Network, which grossed $225 million worldwide in 2010. Please Leave A Comment- Source- THR

David Fincher In Talks To Direct Steve Jobs Film

Based on Walter Isaacson's best-selling biography, the film would reteam Fincher with " Social Network " writer Aaron Sorkin and producer Scott Rudin. David Fincher already has tackled one Silicon Valley billionaire in Mark Zuckerberg. Now, the Social Network director is poised to take on the late Steve Jobs for Sony. Fincher is in early talks to helm the untitled film based on Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography of the Apple co-founder, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter . If a deal comes together, the film would reunite the director with Oscar-winning Social Network writer Aaron Sorkin, who recently finished the adaptation, and Social Network producer Scott Rudin. Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady also are producing. Like Zuckerberg, Jobs was a complicated visionary who became a polarizing figure. Under Jobs' watch, Apple revolutionized several businesses, including personal computers, music, computer-generated animation and mobile phones. In the proce

First Look At Ben Affleck In Gone Girl

As marriages go, David Fincher and Gone Girl is shaping up to be a whole lot more auspicious than that of the two characters at the story’s heart. Empire and 20th Century Fox is proud to give you a first-look pic from the film which also features in our new issue, showing Nick Dunne ( Ben Affleck ), shortly after the disappearance of his wife Amy ( Rosamund Pike ) early in the piece. Note those badges as Nick attempts to galvanise the people of North Carthage, Missouri in his quest to find his missing wife. Gillian Flynn, the ex-journo behind the bestseller and its adaptation, has conjured a story that oscillates neatly from taut domestic drama and thriller and back again - often in the same beat. It’s perfect Fincher terrain, as anyone who’s seen The Game and Panic Room recently will testify. The central mystery powers the plot, but it’s the cracks in their relationship, deeper than a Perth batting wicket from the get-go, that will make the fallout so scarily relatable. Pleas

The Goon Gets A Kickstarter Campaign

A kickstarter campaign for a David Fincher movie? Yes, indeed. The venerable director, along with Tim Miller of Blur Studios and Dark Horse Studios, has taken to crowdfunding to help fund the development of an animated feature based on The Goon , the off-beat Eric Powell comic book The movie has been in development for a couple of years – Fincher is executive producing with Miller co-directing with Jeff Fowler – and thousands of dollars has been spent. An animated proof of concept clip was created and shown at Comic-Con but the project hasn’t gone to the next level since finding a financier to back an animated film that isn’t all-ages or family entertainment is seen as risky. (Tim Burton and Disney's Frankenweenie, which pushes the edges of kid horror and is only PG, is currenty struggling at the box office.) And Goon is definitely in the PG-13 mold (ratings aren't official until after the MPAA has its say). It’s a paranormal-themed quirky comic that mixes humor an

The GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO Movie Review By: RAMA

THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO Movie Review By: RAMA So what did RAMA think of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO ? Make sure to follow him on Facebook and on Twitter . I’ve never read Stieg Larsson’s millennium novels, so I can’t say how faithful this film is to the original material, but I am a big fan of the Swedish adaptation by Danish filmmaker Niels Arden Oplev. Now, I know the fact that Hollywood is obsessed with remakes annoys the hell out of us, but I think there can always be room for different interpretation, different vision and approach and that’s what David Fincher’s version excels in. It’s more detailed, more curious, and more unafraid. It’s a superb and chilling thriller with an astounding performance by Rooney Mara . Whether or not this version is better can be argued but it certainly is a solid film… Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently at the wrong end of a libel case, hired to get to the bottom of Harriet’s disappearance . . . and about Lisbeth

New Poster For The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

A few weeks ago the mysterious behind-the-scenes blog Mouth Taped Shut showed up twitter, immediately proving itself an invaluable resource for gorgeous, informative, or just plain cool photos from behind the scenes of David Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo . Then that same blog tipped people off to the secret screening of 8 minutes of footage from the movie, which Eric wrote up here. It became clear that Mouth Taped Shut was more than just a production blog, but it was being run by someone who knew a lot about what was going on. Which is why this new image, which showed up at Mouth Taped Shut, seems like it might not just be some funky art, but maybe a new poster design or something else to do with the marketing campaign. As you can see below, it shows Daniel Craig's Mikael Blomkvist being overshadowed, or maybe erased, by the profile image of Rooney Mara's Lisbeth Salander. It is, of course, just one of the many striking images at Mouth Taped Shut-- I especi
