David Fincher has walked away from the Steve Jobs biopic. I like to think that he filmed himself doing this in a long, twelve-minute Steadicam shot.

Sony Pictures is looking to replace Fincher, who was asking for a "ridiculous" fee according to studio insiders. The problem stemmed from not only money, but also control. Here Fincher is trying to oversee how the film's marketing will be handled - a wish granted in the past that resulted in the loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

A charming source told THR,  “You’re not doing Transformers here. You’re not doing Captain America. This is quality — it’s not screaming commerciality. He should be rewarded in success but not up front.”

In all fairness, you can't buy groceries with Oscar gold. Just ask Cuba Gooding, Jr..
