Bale, meanwhile, is currently on a break after filming Ridley Scott’s “Exodus,” due in December of this year.

A major project for Sony Pictures, this Steve Jobs biopic will be based on Walter Isaac son’s bestselling biography of the Apple, Mac and iPhone leader “Steve Jobs,” adapted by Aaron Sorkin of “The Social Network” (also directed by Fincher) and with input from key business partner Steve Wozniak.
