The Hollywood Reporter melaporkan ,Sutradara “The Social Network” , David Fincher sedang berada di kantor Sony Pictures untuk membicarakan kemungkinan ia menyutradarai biopik Steve Jobs yang diadaptasi dari biografi terlaris karangan Walter Isaacson. Kemungkinan, Fincher akan kembali bereuni dengan tim dari ‘The Social Network”, yakni penulis Aaron Sorkin dan produser Scott Rudin.
Kabarnya, Steve Wozniak, co-founder dari Apple turut berpartisipasi dalam film tersebut sebagai konsultan.
Berikut deskripsi dari biografi ‘Steve Jobs” yang dikarang oleh Walter Isaacson :
“Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.
At a time when America is seeking ways to sustain its innovative edge, and when societies around the world are trying to build digital-age economies, Jobs stands as the ultimate icon of inventiveness and applied imagination. He knew that the best way to create value in the twenty-first century was to connect creativity with technology. He built a company where leaps of the imagination were combined with remarkable feats of engineering.
Driven by demons, Jobs could drive those around him to fury and despair. But his personality and products were interrelated, just as Apple’s hardware and software tended to be, as if part of an integrated system. His tale is instructive and cautionary, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership, and values.”
