One thing that I’m thankful for is that Leo Dicaprio did a good move pulling out of the Aaron Sorkin scripted, “Jobs” movie. Today, Aaron Sorkin himself just confirmed that Christian Bale is playing Steve Jobs.
There’s a lot of people complaining that why is Hollywood doing another Steve Jobs movie when they just did one with Ashton Kutcher? Yes. I know there is another one and I did see the Kutcher version. The Kutcher movie was pretty good but I didn’t think Kutcher played Steve Jobs very well. The movie was well written and was surprisingly pretty faithful to Steve’s story but Ashton wasn’t a good fit to playing Steve Jobs.
Christian Bale is a perfect fit and I think he’s gonna kill it. Of course, he’s gonna kill it. He’s fucking Christian Bale. He kills every role he plays in. My three favorite movies that Christian Bale has ever played in were: “The Fighter”, “3:10 To Yuma”, “American Psycho” and “American Hustle”. I’m sure there’s more great movies he played in but those I listed are my favorite.
He was an okay Batman but not the greatest, though.
As far as the Jobs movies go, I’ve heard that the Kutcher and Bale movies are gonna be completely different. Kutcher’s version was a straight up biopic, Bale’s version is not gonna be. I’ve heard that Aaron Sorkin only wrote three really long scenes for the film, that’s it. The Bale film is not gonna be what you think it is.
I’m looking forward to Sorkin’s “Jobs” movie. I’m just so glad Leo Dicaprio is no longer involved. I can’t stand Leo. Now that Bale’s in, I’m definitely gonna see this!
David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin worked together for, “The Social Network” film. The two are set to reunite for the upcoming “Steve Jobs” movie.
Honestly, this doesn’t surprise me that David Fincher was going to be on board for this. He’s one of my favorite film makers but I’m also disappointed in this news. Why? I want him to get right to work on, “The Girl Who Played With Fire”, the second Lisbeth Salander movie (w/ Rooney Mara, and Daniel Craig). Look like we may have to wait even longer for “The Girl Who Played With Fire”.
Back to the “Steve Jobs” movie, will they get Trent Reznor to score again? That wouldn’t surprise me as well. They’ll probably get Daniel Craig a role in the “Jobs” movie. Not sure if Daniel Craig will play Steve but maybe a different role. I can’t see Daniel Craig playing Steve anyway, they look nothing like each other.
Hope they pick a good actor to play Steve. I’m not sure of my choices of who to play Steve but for the older Steve… I’d say get somebody like Daniel Day-Lewis or Liam Neeson. Those guys can play just about any role that throws at ’em and I’m positive they can nail it!
Aaron Sorkin, the writer of such movies as, “The Social Network”, and “Moneyball” is hired to write and direct, the biopic for Apple founder, Steve Jobs, for SONY. While Aaron wrote many films over the years, this makes his directorial debut. He never directed his own film before. Even though Aaron Sorkin himself, is no fan of the internet, he still seems to write about this technology stuff for whatever weird reason.
It’s going to be interesting to see who they’re going to get to play, Steve Jobs for the movie. What big name actor do you think resembles Steve? I think Billy Bob Thornton might be a good choice. Kevin Costner maybe? Daniel Day-Lewis? Brad Pitt? Clooney?
They would need a younger actor to play the young, Steve Jobs, too.
I haven’t read the Steve Jobs biography book yet, and that’s probably what the movie is going to be adapted from, wouldn’t surprise me.
