David Fincher wants Christian Bale to play Steve Jobs in biopic

Washington, Mar.21: David Fincher has revealed that he wants Christian Bale to play the role of Steve Jobs in the upcoming biopic.

An insider reportedly told The Wrap that Fincher, who’s in negotiations to direct the movie, based on an Aaron Sorkin’s script, wants Bale to take on the lead role.

The actor wouldn’t need any “elaborate” combover or skeletal weight loss to portray the late Apple co-founder in Sony’s forthcoming biopic, the insider added.

‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ director apparently told Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal that he only wants to direct the still-untitled movie if the British actor is in the cast. (ANI)
