Los Angeles: Director David Fincher has reportedly walked out of producer Aaron Sorkin`s biopic of late Apple founder Steve Jobs.

Sony Pictures has turned down the Oscar-winning filmmaker`s demand for $10 million as pay-day as well as control of the marketing of the movie, reports contactmusic.com.

A source said that Fincher`s salary demands were "ridiculous".

"You`re not doing `Transformers` here. You`re not doing `Captain America`. This is quality - it`s not screaming commerciality. He should be rewarded in success, but not up front," said the source.

It was said that Fincher had joined the as-yet untitled drama after working with Sorkin on the Facebook movie ‘The Social Network’.
