Fincher 'wants Bale for Jobs film'

Christian Bale could play Steve Jobs in a new film

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.

Treat such as gourmet food, beautiful clothes and intriguing books are investments in your happiness. Others may object at being put farther down on your list of priorities, but that's their problem.More
