Acclaimed screenwriter Aaron Sorkin confirmed in an recent interview that Christian Bale will portray late Apple CEO Steve Jobs in an upcoming film from Sony.
Sorkin, the writer behind “A Few Good Men,” “The Social Network,” “The West Wing,” and many more, told Bloomberg’s Emily Chang that Bale is locked in for his adaptation of Walter Isaacson’s 2011 biography “Steve Jobs.”
“We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range,” Sorkin said. “And that’s Chris Bale.”
Sorkin went on to explain that the role with the script he has adapted will be a challenge to even the best actors.
“He has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined. There isn’t a scene or a frame that he’s not in,” Explained Sorkin, “And there’s a tremendous amount of language. So it’s an extremely difficult part and he is gonna crush it.”
The film is set to begin shooting soon with director Danny Boyle (“Slumdog Millionaire,” “Trainspotting,” “127 Hours”) at the helm.
