Director David Fincher, who directed Fight Club and The Social Network, reportedly wants Christian Bale to essay the role of Late Steve Jobs in the new film written by Aaron Sorkin and would be produced by Guymon Casady, Mark Gordon and Scott Rudin.
David Fincher is likely to direct the film only if they manage to get the Oscar winning star of Christian Bale who is best known for The Dark Knight trilogy and American Hustle to perform the role of the Late Apple Chief Executive Officer.
Previously, actor Ashton Kutcher has essayed the character of Steve Jobs in the film titled Jobs (2013). Steve Jobs, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2003, eventually died losing his battle to the disease in the year 2011.
Jobs, that released on August 16, 2103 was written by Matt Whiteley, who began work on the screenplay around the time Steve Jobs took medical leave from Apple to battle pancreatic cancer. Director Joshua Michael Stern had stated in an interview that all material for the screenplay was collected via research and his interviews.
Let’s hope the next attempt at making a movie about the life of American entrepreneur and Late Chief Executive Officer Of Apple; Steve Jobs is an improvement on the last one. Ashton Kutcher tackled the role in 2013’s Jobs, which did not do well at the Box Office. However, the fate of Jobs hasn’t deterred Sony, who believes that there is still money to be made with a new script and a new actor.
Many were not pleased that Ashton Kutcher had been chosen to play the role; perhaps they’ll be happier to hear that this time Christian Bale is rumored to play Steve Jobs.
All said and done, one has to admit that Christian Bale quite resembles Steve Jobs, and we all know that he has the acting scope to take on any role, so he is a sensible choice.
