Christian Bale Steve Jobs 2

It has been confirmed that Christian Bale will play Jobs in Sony Pictures’ Steve Jobs movie.

The part was originally intended to be portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio, but the movie’s screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has confirmed that the role will be played by Bale:

There was a meeting. The role is an extremely difficult role; he has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined. There isn’t a scene or frame that he’s not in.

Danny Boyle (Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire) is set to direct the movie, which will be based on the 2011 Walter Isaacon’s Jobs biography.
