Christian Bale to play Steve Jobs in Sony's biography of the late Apple co-founder
The movie is based on Walter Isaacson's best selling biography, and is written by Aaron Sorkin. The latter received an Oscar in 2011 after penning the script for The Social Network. Danny Boyle will direct. Boyle received an Oscar for his direction of 2008's Slumdog Millionaire. This will be the second Jobs biography to hit the silver screen. Last year, the Ashton Kutchner vehicle Jobs made a quick and uneventful trip through movie theaters nationwide. Steve Wozniak, who was portrayed by Josh Gad in the film, chided the script for being off base.
Sorkin has already discussed the broad outlines of the film. The action will take place backstage before three different Apple announcements. The first is for the introduction of the Mac. The second is for the acquisition of NeXT. It was this transaction that brought Steve Jobs back to Apple, after he was removed from the company he co-founded by John Sculley. The last sequence will show Steve Jobs backstage before the introduction of the Apple iPod. Ironically, that is where the movie Jobs begins.
Shooting on the film, which does not yet have a title, is expected to start in the spring.
