David Fincher Wants Christian Bale to Play Steve Jobs

If there's any chance that Ashton Kutcher considers himself to be the greatest actor to ever play Steve Jobs on film, that bubble got popped today. According to TheWrap, David Fincher wants Christian Bale to play the Apple founder, a move that would elevate an already Oscar-caliber film into rarified air.

Fincher recently met with Sony's Amy Pascal to discuss the possibility of directing the film, and told her, in no uncertain terms, that he'd only take the reins of the project if Bale plays Jobs.

Fincher and Pascal had a tense relationship during the making of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” but Pascal believes in him as a filmmaker — and is inclined to keep him happy, according to one insider. It helps that Pascal has a good relationship with Bale, following a positive experience on “American Hustle.” The film earned Bale an Oscar nomination during a highly-competitive year.

TheWrap reports that Bale hasn't been approached for the role yet, but let's assume this casting does happen. Steve Jobs would take the entire creative team from The Social Network — Fincher, Aaron Sorkin, Scott Rudin — and then add the Oscar-winning Bale to the mix? I want to buy a ticket for this film now.
