Christian Bale confirmed to play Steve Jobs in upcoming film

Стив ДжобсThere’s another Steve Jobs movie in the works (following the “Made for TV” Pirates of Silicon Valley from the late 1990s starring Noah Wyle, and the more recent jOBS starring Ashton Kutcher). It was reported last week that Oscar-winning actor Christian Bale was in the lead to take the role as Jobs, and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin confirmed the news today in an interview with Bloomberg Television.

Bale — known for his role in the Batman Begins/The Dark Knight/The Dark Knight Rises trilogy along with films like American Psycho, The Machinist, and The Fighter — didn’t even have to audition for the role according to Sorkin; "We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale.”

The resemblance is sorta of there, and there’s no doubt that Bale can channel his “Inner Steve Jobs” at the drop of a hat, which is good considering that Sorkin says that the film will have a "tremendous amount of language." Look no further than Bale's outburst while filming on the set of Terminator Salvation in 2008 to see that he can handle that part of the role with ease:

"He has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined," Sorkin added. "It’s an extremely difficult part and he is gonna crush it."

Aaron Sorkin, of The West Wing, Sports Night, and The Social Network fame, will handle the screenplay for the movie, which is based on the Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson. Englishman Danny Boyle, who directed 28 Days Later and Slumdog Millionaire, will handle directing duties.

Sorkin and Boyle both have their own Oscars for their work in The Social Network (screenwriter) and Slumdog Millionaire (directing) respectively.

The untitled Steve Jobs film is slated to begin shooting in early 2015.
