Michael Fassbender to Replace Bale in Steve Jobs Biopic
Michael Fassbender is in talks to join the upcoming Sony film that will portray the life of Steve Jobs, according to reports.
With the departure of Christian Bale, who was to play Jobs, the studio has quickly moved to fill the part for the biopic. It will be based on the the Walter Isaacson biography "Steve Jobs".
Scott Rudin will produce the film, with Danny Boyle directing and Aaron Sorkin penning the script. Sorkin said that the film will be dived into three segments, saying "The first one being the Mac. The second one being NeXT, after he had left Apple. And the third one being the iPod." He also commented about writing the script, saying, "It's a little like writing about the Beatles. There are so many people out there that know him and revere him."
