Christian Bale Eyed for Steve Jobs Biopic After Leonardo DiCaprio Drops Out

Christian Bale is in talks to star as Steve Jobs in the upcoming Untitled Steve Jobs Biopic, tentatively called Jobs!

The 40-year-old actor is the new male actor being considered for the role after Leonardo DiCaprio turned it down to take some time off from acting, Variety reports.

Danny Boyle is set to direct the film, which is being written by Aaron Sorkin. Aaron is basing the screenplay off of Walter Isaacson‘s biography “Steve Jobs.”

This is not the first Steve Jobs biopic to hit theaters. Ashton Kutcher starred as the Apple mogul back in the 2013 film.

WOULD YOU LIKE to see Christian Bale play Steve Jobs??

    oh, who gives a flying f u c k about Steve Jobs. We are acting like he was the best thing that happened to technology ever, well how about we calm the hell down. DiCaprio dodged a bullet.

  • yep

    @nm:
    agree!! and not only that there already was a movie about him that ashton kutcher starred in. why do we need another one!

    I worry that Christian Bale doesn’t have the intelligence in his eyes and possibly even the actual intelligence, to be quite frank, to portray Steve Jobs. I think a better actor for the role would be Shia Labeouf.

    Shia you need your head examined. Leo was a bad choice, Christian Bale can play anyone.

    This project has been passed about for a yr..they have hinted and suggested they want christian for the project since february..now that leo is officially out, it may happen…like others have pointed out..ashton krutcher’s “Jobs” was a flop at the box office..
