Apparently, director David Fincher wants Christian Bale to play Steve Jobs in his biopic written by Aaron Sorkin. It would be awesome to see Bale in the role. I think he could pull it off perfectly. He's got the look and the talent.
Fincher recently met with the studio about the possiblity of directing the movie. It's not set in stone yet, but if it happens this would be my dream team of talent to bring this movie to life.
The news comes from The Wrap, which says that Bale has not yet been approached to play Jobs. I'm sure one day they will, though. The actor is currently taking a break since finishing his role as Moses in Ridley Scott's Exodus.
The biopic is based on Walter Isaacson's bestselling authorized biography. That book was based on more than 40 interviews that the author had with Jobs, as well as interviews with friends, family, and colleagues.
The film itself is said to consist of three long scenes that feature the launches of some of Apple's most buzzed-about product launches, including the Mac, NeXT (after Jobs had left Apple), and the iPod.
