According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Fincher has now backed out of the ongoing talks with Sony regarding the Steve Jobs biopic based on the Walter Isaacson biography.

Supposedly, the final straw was the request that he be paid $10 million up front and he also wanted to control the marketing plan. According to their sources, the problem was that this isn’t a sure fire success commercially.

This isn’t the next Trasnformers movie. This is coming after reports that there were already conflicts happening over Fincher requesting that Christian Bale play Jobs or else he would walk. The studio also supposedly spent a great deal of money producing promotional material to meet his needs before the deciding that it wouldn’t be suitable for use in theaters.

Fincher has been known for a large number of blockbusters and cult movies such as Fight Club and Se7en, although there were problems with the way the marketing for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was handled, which led to the studio’s distrust.

This could be another bump in the road for a movie that is already a long way off. News has been sparse on the film, but it is awaited as the answer to the Asthon Kutcher featured Jobs movie that was already released to less than stellar reviews.
