A new biopic on Steve Jobs is in the works coming from Aaron Sorkin and will be directed by Danny Boyle. It has just been announced that Christian Bale will play jobs in the film. Of course we best know Bale for being Batman, but can you see him being Steve Jobs?
In a recent interview Aaron Sorkin said, “We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale. He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting”. There were other actors considered for the role like Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Bradley Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio, but Bale got the nod for the gig.
While the film does not have a title yet it is bases on the 2011 biography of Jobs by Walter Isaacson. Shooting for the film is said to start in the coming months. Sorkin seems very excited to be working with Bale as he added, “He has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined. There isn’t a scene or a frame that he’s not in. So it’s an extremely difficult part and he is gonna crush it”.
Do you think Bale will make a good Steve Jobs?
