David Fincher is in talks to direct an upcoming Steve Jobs biopic penned by Aaron Sorkin, and, unsurprisingly, the untitled biopic will be ambitious. As in, the movie will feature just be three scenes that take place before three product launches—Mac in 1984, NeXT in 1990, and the iPod in 2001. Ambitious is an understatement.
That plot detail aside, though...who will play enigmatic figure Steve Jobs?
Fincher reportedly has his eye on Christian Bale. The Wrap reports that "an individual familiar with the project" told Sony Pictures' Co-Chairman, Amy Pascal that Fincher will only do the movie if Bale plays Jobs. Can you all imagine?
No word on the validity of these rumors, but, as always, we'll keep you posted.
