A little while back, director David Fincher was looking to cast Christian Bale as Steve Jobs in an untitled biopic about the life of the Apple co-founder written by Aaron Sorkin. Then Fincher left and the project and so did Bale. Now, with Danny Boyle at the helm, Bale has once again returned to the film and is currently in negotiations to take the part.
The third and final season of HBO's 'The Newsroom' won't go to presses until November 9, but Will McAvoy and the ACN news team are pulling out all the stops in the first official trailer. Goodbye pretentious copy machines, hello Boston bombing outrage, international espionage and all the Sorkin-y relationship drama you can handle for 'The Newsroom' season 3!
HBO's 'The Newsroom' has never quite earned creator Aaron Sorkin the acclaim of its TV predecessors, but we'll be sad to see it go all the same when the first of a final 6 episodes premiere on November 9. Our latest behind-the-scenes look at season 3 confirms that the topical drama will tackle government whistle-blowers, also revealing that 'The Office' star B.J. Novak will join Kat Dennings among the major guest stars for the season.
Fans of HBO Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom' (come on, there's at least a few of you) were somewhat let down by the initial season 3 teaser, which offered little more than xeroxed pages of the final episode scripts. And while a proper trailer is still to come before the November premiere, find out what's got Will McAvoy so dapper, and what McKenzie's shooting at in our first footage from 'The Newsroom''s final season!
It's been a good long while since we've heard anything on the third and final season of HBO's 'The Newsroom,' but in lieu of any major casting announcements or footage, it seems we at least have a premiere in mind. The network has finally copied up our first cryptic teaser of 'The Newsroom' season 3, touting its "final episodes," but what secrets are hidden between the lines?
Surprised though we were to see HBO agree to make season 3 of Aaron Sorkin's 'The Newsroom' its final season, the early end has nothing on his latest revelations about the journalism drama. Speaking from a recent conference, Sorkin straight up apologized for criticism of the series, simultaneously previewing a few major world events that will end up covered (*cough* scrutinized) when 'The Newsroom' returns this summer.
HBO's 'The Newsroom' won't return until much later this year, even then taking a surprising season 3 bow-out to end the series, but the legacy of Aaron Sorkin parody remains as ripe as ever. Watch Amy Schumer and 'Sports Night' veteran Josh Charles capture that classic Sorkin style in new 'Inside Amy Schumer' parody 'The Foodroom.' And, yes, there's walk-and-talk.
In a move that really shouldn't surprise too many people, the ever-picky David Fincher is out of the director's chair for the upcoming (and untitled) Steve Jobs biopic, scripted by Aaron Sorkin. The 'Zodiac' and 'The Social Network' director has a reputation for being demanding, and it looks like Sony balked at his requested fee and level of control.
In 2010, director David Fincher, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and producer Scott Rudin struck box office and Oscar gold with 'The Social Network,' which told the story of Mark Zuckerberg. Now, that same team is looking to officially reunite and tell the story of one of the few people in tech history bigger than the creator of Facebook: Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
