Christian Bale to take lead role in David Fincher’s Steve Jobs Biopic?
Christian Bale to Play Mr Apple in David Fincher’s Steve Jobs Biopic?
It seems David Fincher has set his sights on and indeed made it a condition of his accepting the project from Sony, that they secure Christian Bale for the lead role of Steve Jobs. Studio co-chair Amy Pascal who previously worked with Fincher on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is said to be more than happy with his request.
The project that has been sitting in limbo for some time is now said to focus around three long scenes, each dealing with a different product launch. The lacklustre performance of the recent film Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher does not appear to have dented confidence or ambition of this project.
Bale, who has just wrapped on Ridley Scott’s biblical epic Exodus, has not yet made an official announcement whether he will accept the role as of yet.
