Christian Bale In Talks For Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs Biopic

15 October 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Today we’ve learned from Variety that The Dark Knight himself, Christian Bale, is currently in talks to play Steve Jobs in Sony’s upcoming biopic of the Apple founder.

Don’t worry, you’ve not stepped into an alternate universe wherein the Ashton Kutcher version no longer exists. It still does. However, this new feature intends to walk a different path and approach Jobs’ life from a unique angle. With Danny Boyle directing and Aaron Sorkin on scripting duties, such a talented duo are undoubtedly gonna carve out something special. The pic will be adapted from Walter Isaacson’s biography of Jobs, which Sorkin has hinted will play around with the typical biopic structure. Split into three “acts,” each 30 minute scene will focus on Jobs at the time of three major product launches  – the Mac, the NeXT and the iPod.

This isn’t the first time Bale’s name »

Christian Bale to play Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle/Aaron Sorkin biopic

15 October 2014 3:13 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

Christian Bale can play anything from gruff, intense, suave, confident, shady and even decrepit, but can he play someone as inspirational as Steve Jobs?

According to Variety, Bale is currently in talks to play the lead role in a biopic entitled Jobs based on Walter Isaacson’s biography “Steve Jobs” in a film directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin.

The film, as Sorkin has discussed in great detail previously, would follow Jobs at three different pinnacle press conferences throughout his Apple career, first at the launch of the Mac, then NeXT and finally the iPod. It’s a project Sorkin was originally slated to do with David Fincher at the helm, and Bale was originally Fincher’s first choice prior to dropping off the project.

The fake, photoshopped poster above gives a little hope that Bale, i.e. Batman, would actually be able to look the part, »

15 October 2014 1:29 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Christian Bale is reportedly in talks to join director Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs biopic.

The upcoming film will be written by Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin, and will chronicle Jobs in the run-up to three important Apple milestones.

Christian Bale's top 5 movie roles: Batman, American Psycho, The Fighter

Bale will apparently shoot this project in the spring if he ultimately signs on, according to Variety.

Boyle and Sorkin's film will be an adaptation of author Walter Isaacson's 2011 biography Steve Jobs.

Leonardo DiCaprio had been tipped to star in the film, only to drop out earlier in October to take a hiatus from acting.

The Apple icon's life was previously immortalised in Jobs, which starred Ashton Kutcher in the title role.

Bale will next appear on the big screen in Exodus: Gods and Kings and Knight of Cups.

Christian Bale to Star in 'Steve Jobs' Biopic

15 October 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As soon as Leonardo DiCaprio stepped away from the Steve Jobs biopic two weeks ago, Christian Bale was quickly mentioned as one of the front runners for the coveted role. Today it has been announced that he has entered talks to play the Apple CEO and entrepreneur.

Negotiations began shortly after Christian Bale's talks with Fox for The Deep Blue Goodbye hit a roadblock. Sony has reportedly reentered talks with Christian Bale for Steve Jobs, after he was first considered for the role back when David Fincher was meeting with the studio to direct the drama.

Christian Bale had a problem signing on for The Deep Blue Goodbye because Fox wanted the actor for sequels. Christian Bale is planning to tackle the lead role of Detective Travis McGee in what the studio hopes will be a franchise starter, but he balked at the idea of agreeing to a follow-up. »

Christian Bale Could Still Play Steve Jobs for Director Danny Boyle

15 October 2014 12:21 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though Christian Bale was director David Fincher's choice to play Steve Jobs in a biopic about the Apple founder developing at Sony Pictures, it won't be the Gone Girl filmmaker at the helm of the project. Fincher fell away from the film due to disagreement over his paycheck and creative control, and in April, we learned that Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle was taking over the film with an eye to have Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead role. But now we've come full circle and met in the middle as Variety reports it will actually be Christian Bale playing the late technology innovator in the film that is currently called Jobs. It seems confusing to have the film take the same name as another biopic about Steve Jobs that was led by Ashton Kutcher a couple years ago, but the difference in quality will probably help this one stand out much more. »

Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs Biopic Boots Up With Christian Bale In The Lead Role

15 October 2014 11:52 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

David Fincher wanted him back when the "Gone Girl" director was circling the film, and Christian Bale's name turned up again recently in reports that he was being eyed along with Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Bradley Cooper for the lead in Danny Boyle's upcoming Steve Jobs biopic. And now it looks like the gig is his. Variety reports the Bale is in talks for "Jobs," which isn't to be confused with the Ashton Kutcher movie everyone would rather forget. As you'll recall, the film has a script by Aaron Sorkin, based on the acclaimed biography by Walter Isaacson, but it won't be your usual birth-to-death approach. Instead, Sorkin revealed in 2012 that his script utilizes three "real time" 30-minute scenes to capture the Mac, NeXT, and iPod product launches, in 1984, 1997, and 2001 respectively. So no, this won't be the saga of the bending iPhone 6. No word yet on when this will begin production, »

Christian Bale in talks to play Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle's biopic

15 October 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Six months ago, David Fincher departed Sony's biopic on Steve Jobs amidst creative differences, one of which was regarding his desire to cast Christian Bale in the title role. The Aaron Sorkin scripted movie based on Jobs' authorized biography would have been an instant Oscar contender and was due to go against the Ashton Kutcher film Jobs. Now, Fincher has departed and Danny Boyle is slated to direct and it looks like he may get the star Fincher wanted. The Hollywood Reporter says talks »

A Brief History of Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs Biopic That Just Can’t Compute

3 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Remember way, way back in 2012, when it seemed as if we were due to get not one, but two whole Steve Jobs biopics? There was going to be the super-serious, well-researched one with a bold script by Aaron Sorkin, and then also an indie feature penned by a total Hollywood outsider that starred a dude from That ’70s Show. It was a wonderful time, one that offered something for truly everyone. It didn’t pan out. Sure, the Ashton Kutcher-starring Jobs was made (even opening at Sundance!), but Sorkin’s film is still in limbo, thanks to a slow cycle through directors (as of this count, just two, but two big ones) and its inability to lock down a leading man. Last set to be directed by Danny Boyle with his Beach star Leonardo DiCaprio on board to play Jobs, the Sony film has now lost DiCaprio (the one actor who was ever officially attached to »

Leonardo DiCaprio Decides Not to Star in Steve Jobs Biopic

3 October 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Leonardo DiCaprio has removed himself from contention to play Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in an upcoming, Danny Boyle-directed biopic. According to The Hollywood Reporter, DiCaprio – who had recently been in talks for the part – has bowed out in order to focus on his starring role in Alejandro González Iñárritu's The Revenant, a western-thriller based in part on the life of legendary frontiersman Hugh Glass. After shooting that film, which is expected to hit theaters in 2015, DiCaprio reportedly plans to take a lengthy hiatus from acting.

Leonardo DiCaprio Drops Out of Running to Play Steve Jobs in the Other Planned Biopic About the Apple Co-Founder

2 October 2014 6:12 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Leonardo DiCaprio won't be following in Ashton Kutcher's footsteps after all. The five-time Oscar nominee has dropped out of the running to play Steve Jobs in the as-yet untitled biopic being adapted from Walter Isaacson's best-selling biographic by Aaron Sorkin and to be directed by Danny Boyle.  (Wich is not to be confused with Jobs, the movie starring Ashton Kutcher as the Apple co-founder that already came and went. But you know how movies tend to happen in pairs...) E! News has confirmed a THR report that the 39-year-old actor, who has channeled a number of larger-than-life characters on the big screen over the years, had been in talks but ultimately hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete on »

Leonardo DiCaprio Departs Steve Jobs Biopic; Bale, Affleck, Damon And Cooper In The Running

2 October 2014 1:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sony’s biopic about late Apple Founder, Steve Jobs, has stalled since it was announced back in 2011. Three years ago, the delay occurred around the time of Jobs’ death. Since then the movie has suffered a plague of development issues – and today marks the arrival of one more set back. Leonardo DiCaprio, the leading man who was reportedly on track to start work soon on the picture, has bowed out.

The actor has chosen to abandon the rags-to-riches tale in favour of tackling The Revenant, the upcoming thriller from Birdman helmer Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. It was assumed DiCaprio would wrap up shooting on that pic, before starting work on the Jobs flick – but he’s now taken himself completely off the project so he can embark on a long hiatus from acting.

24 September 2014 11:26 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

The pregnant Third Person star, Mila Kunis ran errands Wednesday afternoon, starting with visiting a carwash in L.A. Afterward, Kunis.wearing a striped tank top, distressed denim and flip flops.went shopping at Target. A female friend pushed a shopping cart, which appeared to be filled with clothing. It's unknown if Kunis purchased anything, although it appears she and Ashton Kutcher are ready for their baby girl's arrival.

Later that night, Kutcher tweeted a picture from their living room. "Nesting.... Too much?" he asked. Multiple toys were displayed in the photo, including two battery-powered cars, two arcade games and a slide. The former That '70s Show co-stars have amassed an impressive stuffed animal collection for their unborn daughter, with alligator, giraffe, gorilla, panda bear and polar bear plush toys filling the space.

It’s Electrifying: John Travolta to Depict one of the Hardest Jobs in the World in ‘Life on the Line’

24 September 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There are plenty of films about a variety of dangerous career paths. Firefighters, police officers, paramedics, that one where Ashton Kutcher is a Coast Guard, all branches of the military, construction crews, vigilante superheroes, lifeguards, pilots and conductors, detectives and inspectors, astronauts — they’ve all had their due. But one sector of selfless, high-impact human service has largely been ignored by the film industry: linemen. It doesn’t matter what kind, be it those who lay railroad tracks or those who install and repair electrical, telephone or telegraph wires. They’ve gotten the short end of the stick. With the last film to commemorate their work premiering in 1937 (Slim the Lineman, which starred Henry Fonda), it’s now up to John Travolta and a merry band of brethren that includes Kate Bosworth and Devon Sawa to right this wrongs with Life On The Line. The indie drama, directed by David Hackl (Grizzly) and written by the team »
