Jobs Biopic: Christian Bale as Co-Founder of Apple

In an interview with Bloomberg’s Emily Chang on an upcoming edition of “Studio 1.0,” screenwriter Aaron Sorkin confirmed Christian Bale will be playing Steve Jobs in the coming biopic of the Apple Inc. co-founder.

“We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale.” Sorkin said, “He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting.”

Sorkin who is working on an adaption of Walter Isaacson’s 2011 biography “Steve Jobs” for Sony Corp said the film will begin shooting in the next couple of months.

“Bale has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined,” Sorkin said. “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.”
