New rumors reveal that the famous actor is going to play the role of Steve Jobs in upcoming movie about his life. Apparently, Christian Bale is in talks with producers to play the iconic American entrepreneur.
Without a doubt, Bale is very famous for playing the role of Batman. If the star will get this part, it will definitely be extremely interesting to discover his performance. The new movie, Jobs, is based on the biography of the Apple co-founder, written by Walter Isaacson. Steve Jobs died in 2011 from cancer.
The movie script has been written by Aaron Sorkin and the movie will be directed by Danny Boyle, well-known for his work at Slumdog Millionaire. The new movie promises to be extremely interesting, as the action actually takes place backstage, before the launch of one of the most famous Apple products. ”It’s a little like writing about the Beatles. There are so many people out there that know him and revere him,” Aaron claimed about the new movie.
Well, Christian Bale is not the first Hollywood star to be linked to this role. Rumors also revealed that actors Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Bradley Cooper were considered to play Steve Jobs. The first choice of producers has been Leonardo DiCaprio, but he decided to drop out of the project. Reports reveal that DiCaprio actually turned out the job, although it is unclear why he made this decision.
It is claimed that filming for the movie Jobs will start during the spring. Christian Bale could take this project, as then he will start filming for another project, The Deep Blue Goodbye. Moreover, there are some new reports that indicate that the famous actor is actually dropping out from that project, as he does not want to be locked into potential sequels of The Deep Blue Goodbye.
Until we will find out if Christian Bale will star in Jobs or not, fans of the famous actor can see him in his new role as Moses in Exodus: Gods and Kings. The movie is set to be released in December.
