Christian Bale is being sought to star as Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in David Fincher's biopic of the man.
Fincher, however, has reportedly told Sony's Amy Pascal that he would only take on the project if Bale signs onto play the entrepreneur.
Bale has not been officially approached as yet, the actor on a break following work on Ridley Scott's "Exodus".
Bale has long been considered a front runner to take on the role since it was first announced. Aaron Sorkin penned the script from Walter Isaacson's best-selling biography. Filming is likely to begin early next year.
