Steve Jobs David Fincher
A Steve Jobs biopic. Sony and Scott Rudin producing, Aaron Sorkin had written the script and David Fincher in the directing chair. It’s basically a dream re-team of the key principals behind “The Social Network,” which worked out swimmingly well for everyone, right?

Steve Jobs David Fincher
"A movie about Facebook? Good luck"—that was the sentiment of many upon first hearing about "The Social Network," but they underestimated the talent involved. Featuring a crackling script by Aaron Sorkin and precise, energetic direction by David Fincher, the film was less about the actual website, and instead chronicled the genius, hubris, ambition, flaws and vision of one extraordinary person who changed the way we interact online. Now, it looks like Fincher is at it again, telling the tale of another tech titan.

Randall Miller's rock 'n' roll tribute "CBGB" has found its female lead with 'Twilight' star Ashley Greene taking on the role of Lisa Kristal, daughter of the Hilly Kristel, the owner of the titular, influential New York club to be played by Alan Rickman. The story follows Kristal as she clashes with her father, ends up as the club's business manager and attends law school all while keeping the club afloat during tough times. The real life Lisa Kristal is, in fact, a producer on the film so authenticity shouldn't be an issue here. Miller is helming from a script he wrote with Jody Savin with several interesting cast members already filled including Taylor Hawkins as Iggy Pop, Mickey Sumner as Patti Smith and Malin Akerman as Debbie Harry.

Is Steve Jobs the new Truman Capote? Ever since the pioneering genius behind Apple and Pixar passed away last year, Hollywood types have been jostling to make a film about him, just as we saw multiple biopics of the "In Cold Blood" writer a half-decade or so ago, with "Capote" and "Infamous." And indeed, one of them is already in front of cameras, with the unlikely casting of Ashton Kutcher as the polo-necked techno-billionaire. But a far more prestigious project is gearing up, and it's just landed what many would think of as the perfect screenwriter for the job.

Brad Bird has made a bold, fascinating leap from animation to live action with this week's glorious popcorn epic "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol." But we were curious as to what kind of connection he still has with Pixar, his former home base, as well as what else he is working on. In the second part of our lengthy interview with the filmmaker (you can read the first part here), he fills us in on Pixar, his live action historical epic "1906," the status of his animated film noir "Ray Gunn," what former Pixar owner Steve Jobs meant to him, and why Wall Street is so scared of Pixar.
