Michael Fassbender in talks to play Steve Jobs

News Helpline | November, 05 2014

Another day, another development for Sony’s Steve Jobs biopic! Christian Bale abruptly dropped out of the ambitious film only yesterday, but director Danny Boyle and the studio have already set their sights on one of the few leading men who can match his intensity: Michael Fassbender.

The movie was scheduled to begin filming this winter in hopes of a quick release.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film's director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) is scouting for actors and actresses in Los Angeles this week.
Bale allegedly is the second high-profile star to turn down the role after Leonardo DiCaprio declined.
Seth Rogen was the top choice to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, but that was reportedly not set in stone. There are also whispers Zero Dark Thirty actress Jessica Chastain is tipped for an unspecified role. 

 If Fassbender does sign on the dotted line, he’ll join a cast that will supposedly include Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and Jessica Chastain as Jobs’ assistant. With the buzz about Aaron Sorkin’s screenplay through the roof, this feels like the right move for Fassbender. After all, you can only Mangeto so many times before it gets boring.
This film still doesn’t have a title, but Sony wants to get rolling soon for a late 2015 release date. But how many leading men will they churn through first?!
