Danny Boyle's upcoming Steve Jobs biopic has already found its leading man in Christian Bale, but now the production is looking to cast the role of Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple. And they couldn't have found an actor more disparate than Christian Bale for the part: Seth Rogen is currently in talks to join the film.
A little while back, director David Fincher was looking to cast Christian Bale as Steve Jobs in an untitled biopic about the life of the Apple co-founder written by Aaron Sorkin. Then Fincher left and the project and so did Bale. Now, with Danny Boyle at the helm, Bale has once again returned to the film and is currently in negotiations to take the part.
It looks like director Danny Boyle will have to find a new Steve Jobs for his upcoming biopic, as Leonardo DiCaprio has formally exited the project. The actor has backed out to star in another film instead, and now the studio has their eyes on a few replacements, including original choice Christian Bale.
In a move that really shouldn't surprise too many people, the ever-picky David Fincher is out of the director's chair for the upcoming (and untitled) Steve Jobs biopic, scripted by Aaron Sorkin. The 'Zodiac' and 'The Social Network' director has a reputation for being demanding, and it looks like Sony balked at his requested fee and level of control.
