Christian Bale confirmed to take lead in Steve Jobs biopic
Yesterday, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin confirmed Bale is to play Jobs in an interview with Bloomberg Television. "We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale," Sorkin explained during the interview, adding: "He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting."
Rumours have been circulating for some time as to who would take the coveted role, with reports suggesting Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Bradley Cooper, and Leonardo DiCaprio were to play the iconic tech pioneer.
The film, which is based on Walter Isaacson's 2011 biography, will start shooting in a few months.
