Christian Bale in Talks to Star in Upcoming Steve Jobs Movie

Posted October 15, 2014 at 11:05pm by iClarified
Oscar winner Christian Bale is in talks to star in 'Jobs', a Sony biopic about the late Apple co-founder, reports Variety. The movie will be based on Walter Isaacson's biography 'Steve Jobs' and written by Aaron Sorkin.

Variety says that Danny Boyle will direct the film and Scott Rudin will produce along with Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady.

Sorkin previously revealed that the movie would be divided into three scenes that take place backstage before three Apple product launches.

“The first one being the Mac,” he said. “The second one being NeXT, after he had left Apple. And the third one being the iPod."

"It’s a little like writing about the Beatles," notes Sorkin. "There are so many people out there that know him and revere him."

Director David Fincher had previously been in talks to direct the movie; however, those apparently faltered due to Fincher's aggressive demands for compensation and control of the project.

Do you think Bale will make a good Jobs? Let us know what you think in the comments.

Ashton Kutcher movie was good enough. Let it go.

Or maybe they want to make an extra part. Let it be and find out.

I love my Apple devices but another movie after the book is too much and for sure to soon, we got to accept that Steve is gone because he wanted to, he could have been with us now if only he did the surgery. So Apple is no longer the Apple we all knew and loved and we got to accept it and move on with the new Apple, no more movies please.

Steve or not, Apple will always be what is started as from the beginning and will always live up to this day. What has changed since Steve is gone? Iphone is still selling like an almighty source since the beginning, tim actually made a mind blowing new products that works better than competition, and best of all they are the world biggest global brand? What exactly is missing here?

Regardless of which actor we like I think Christian Bala has the most similarity so definitively a good Jobs.

do you think others are willing to take the risk of playing Jobs?

Nat, you ask a serious question so I'll give you a serious answer: I just don't care! I don't understand why just because someone likes a product, they have to worship Steve Jobs. He wasn't that unique after all, he just worked on things that a lot of people use. There are far more interesting inventors and inventions.

reality check. No one would be as brilliant as jobs no matter how much brighter inventions try to be other than mobile or computer devices. Jobs will always be what he has been. Unique than ever even on his own without help.

I think they should use Ashton Kutcher.

They just did. This next one is either an improved remake or part 2.

They should pick Denzel Washington, "Windows ain't got shit on me"

Another jobs movie? I bet this one is part 2 after the first imac (like the ending of the first one).
