Now that the new season of House of Cards has been released, David Fincher might be leaving behind the cutthroat world of politics in favor of the cutthroat world of Silicon Valley (again), as the director is in talks to helm the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic based on the best-selling biography by Walter Isaacson. The film, which has a script written by one-time Fincher collaborator Aaron Sorkin, will chronicle Jobs' career at Apple through three real time scenes of major product launches, running at about a half hour each. If, by chance, this project sounds a bit familiar to you, that's probably because Fincher and Sorkin have already teamed up to make a movie about a technological giant, way back in 2010. It was called The Social Network. You might remember it; it was nominated for Best Picture.
Okay, so they have the same creative team, you might be thinking, so what? How similar could they actually be? Shockingly similar, as it turns out. In fact, we've compiled all of the things that the two films have in common in order to give you a comprehensive look at all of the ways that this Steve Jobs biopic is, for all intents and purposes, The Social Network 2. Look on the bright side, though: at least it doesn't have very much in common with Jobs.
