Christian Bale is an amazing actor, having played all kinds of role, being the type of actor that can approach pretty much anything you assign him to do. And now it seems that he'll play as Steve Jobs in a forthcoming feature film based on Walter Isaacson's biography of the late Apple co-founder.
The information comes from Oscar winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin who said the following in a Bloomberg Television interview with Emily Chang:
"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."
Bale was first rumored to be in consideration in March, and now we seem to have some sort of confirmation.
Sorkin also added the following about Bale's adaption of Steve Jobs:
"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."
The screenwriter also said that principal shooting for the film should begin in the next couple of months, but a definite timetable is still unknown.
