NEW YORK, October 23. /TASS/. British actor Christian Bale will play Steve Jobs in an upcoming biopic dedicated to Apple’s co-founder. This was confirmed to Bloomberg by the movie’s screenwriter Aaron Sorkin.
According to Sorkin, shooting will start in the coming months. The movie is based on the bestseller biography "Steve Jobs" written by Walter Isaacson, a former chairman and CEO of television company CNN and the Managing Editor of Weekly Times. Released on October 2011, the book is based on around thirty interviews with Jobs in addition to those with more than hundreds of people, mainly with his family members, friends, colleagues and competitors.
The new movie’s title, as well as its release date, is yet unknown. Aaron Sorkin is an Academy Award and Golden Globe winner for his screenplay of The Social Network, the movie about Facebook founder Mark Zuckenberg.
Christian Bale came to receive great recognition for his performance as Batman in Christopher Nolan’s same-name trilogy. Besides, he is an Academy Award winner for Best Supporting actor in The Fighter (2010).
“We needed the best actor in the certain age range, and that’s Chris Bale. He didn’t have to audition”, Sorkin said. They also considered Leonardo DiCaprio for the role.
This is not the first film about Apple founder who died from cancer in October 2011. In 2013, the movie "Jobs" came out, starring American actor Ashton Kutcher, but neither viewers nor movie critics found it successful.
