The Slumdog Millionaire filmmaker is the frontrunner to replace David Fincher, who bowed out of negotiations for the film last week, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

While Fincher had his sights set on Christian Bale taking on the lead role, Boyle is reportedly determined to cast Leonardo DiCaprio as the tech genius, nearly 14 years after the two collaborated on adventure drama The Beach.

The as-yet-untitled film will be based on Walter Isaacson's biography Steve Jobs, with a screenplay adapted by The Social Network writer Aaron Sorkin.

Jobs, who died in 2011, has already been portrayed by Ashton Kutcher in 2013's Jobs.
