Christian Bale could be set to play Steve Jobs on the big screen.

Filmmaker David Fincher has been in negotiations about directing a movie about the late Apple co-founder, and The Wrap has reported that Batman star Christian is his first choice for the lead role.

Fincher apparently told Sony during a meeting that he would only take the reins if Christian was cast as Jobs.

However, the American Hustle actor has yet to be offered the part in the as-yet-untitled biopic so it isn't known whether he would sign up.

The film was written by Aaron Sorkin.

It comes after last year's Jobs, which saw Ashton Kutcher play the tech genius.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

You must get in touch with your instincts. Tune in to your body's signals. Your stomach will tell you which direction to take. When it gives a painful twinge, you should change paths. When it flutters with excitement, you should move forward. This will be a surprisingly accurate barometer. Don't disparage it.More
