Michael Fassbender in talks to star in Steve Jobs biopic

MICHAEL Fassbender could be in line to play Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in the forthcoming biopic, Jobs, it has been reported.

The Kerryman is rumoured to be in talks to star in the Danny Boyle-directed film, following Christian Bale's departure from the project.

Aaron Sorkin, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Sony’s The Social Network, will adapt Walter Isaacson’s bestselling Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography. 

It has already been reported that Seth Rogen is in talks to play another Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak.

Speaking to the Daily Beast about the film, Sorkin said it would be divided into three lengthy scenes, taking place backstage before key product launches.

"The first one being the Mac. The second one being NeXT. And the third one being the iPod," he said.

Sorkin added: "It's a little like writing about the Beatles. There are so many people out there that know him and revere him."
