DiCaprio as Steve Jobs?

Well, here’s an interesting little tidbit: The Hollywood Reporter writes today that the long-simmering Steve Jobs biopic — that’s the one scripted by Aaron Sorkin and based on Walter Isaacson’s bestselling biography of Jobs, not the movie “Jobs” with Ashton Kutcher last year, which disappeared from theaters quickly — may have a new director and star. David Fincher, originally attached to direct (and who reportedly wanted Christian Bale in the lead — hmm, I can see that), has left the project; now Danny Boyle is in talks to direct the film . . . and has apparently approached Leonardo DiCaprio to star. (Boyle and DiCaprio have teamed up before, for 2000’s “The Beach.”) Potentially intriguing . . . but we shall see. Boyle’s one of those directors who’s seemingly good at every genre he tries; I’d like to see what he (and Sorkin) might make of this story.
