Steve Jobs Biopic Eyes Seth Rogen To Play Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Opposite Christian Bale; Jessica Chastain Rumored To Play One Of The Female Leads

Seth Rogen is being eyed to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak opposite Christian Bale in Sony's Steve Jobs biographical movie, while Jessica Chastain is rumored to play one of the female leads.

While negotiations have not yet started, producers Scott Rudin, Guymon Casady and Mark Gordon have set their sights on Rogen, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It is not clear, however, if Rogen already has an official offer.

Rogen's possible pairing with Bale, who is set to play Jobs, has been compared to Martin Scorsese's decision to cast Jonah Hill alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in the 2013 black comedy film "The Wolf of Wall Street," The Wrap reported.

Wozniak founded Apple with Jobs and Ronald Wayne, and is credited with launching the Apple I and Apple II computers in the late 1970s, which had a significant impact on the revolution of microcomputer, Variety reported. Wozniak left the company he co-founded as a full-time employee in 1987.

Danny Boyle is directing the yet-to-be titled biopic, based on Walter Isaacson's biography "Steve Jobs," which was adapted by Aaron Sorkin.

Sources told THR that Boyle will be flying to Los Angeles to meet with actresses that are being considered to play a female assistant to Jobs. Insiders said that Chastain's name is included on the meeting list.

Meanwhile, Sorkin previously said that the upcoming movie will be divided into three long scenes, each taking place backstage before one of Apple's famous product launches.

"The first one being the Mac," the Oscar-winning writer told the Daily Beast. "The second one being NeXT, after he had left Apple. And the third one being the iPod."

"It's a little like writing about the Beatles," explained Sorkin, whose writing credits include "The Newsroom," "Moneyball"  and "The Social Network.""There are so many people out there that know him and revere him."
