Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin told Bloomberg Television Thursday that Christian Bale will fill the role of the late Apple founder Steve Jobs, for the upcoming big-screen, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Sorkin said that Bale is a phenomenal actor and he didn't have to audition to win the role since they have spoken about it in a meeting, according to CNN.

"What we needed was the best actor," he added.

The upcoming unnamed biopic by Walter Isaacson, who was given unprecedented access to Job's life, is based on the life of the former Apple CEO who died in 2011 due to pancreatic cancer.

The other contenders for the role were Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Leonardo Dicaprio, The Verge reported.

The biopic is reported to begin shooting within the next couple of months.

Sorkin said that Bale will have more words to say in the movie than most people would have if three movies are combined since there isn't a scene or a frame that the actor is not in, Time reported.

Sorkin also admitted that the role that Bale will play is extremely difficult, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

Ashton Kutcher played the role of thr tech giant CEO in the biopic "Jobs" in 2013. The biographical drama received a poor critical response and suffered commercially, according to The Telegraph.

The 40-year-old Bale is best known for playing Bruce Wayne and his alter ego, Batman, in the "Dark Knight" trilogy.

He also won the Academy Award for best supporting actor in 2011 for the film "The Fighter," and was nominated in Oscar for his role in "American Hustle" this year, CNET reported.

Bale made his breakthrough in Steven Spielberg's film, "Empire of the Sun" when he was a child.

The actor will star in an upcoming movie, "Exodus: Gods and Kings," which is directed by Ridley Scott, to be release on Dec. 4.
