Christian Bale to Play Steve Jobs in Upcoming Biopic
Christian Bale has signed on to play the late Steve Jobs in and upcoming biopic, which will be released by Sony. Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin confirmed the news in a recent interview. The film will be an adaptation of 2011s biography "Steve Jobs". 

Sorkin said, "We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that's Chris Bale. He didn't have to audition. Well, there was a meeting."

Jobs was notorious for his faced pace dialogue, and Sorkin said that they will be featuring a lot of that in the script.  "He has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined", said Sorkin. "There isn't a scene or a frame that he's not in. And there's a tremendous amount of language. So it's an extremely difficult part and he is gonna crush it."
