It’s a tough Jobs but somebody’s got to do it.

With Christian Bale parting ways on the project, Sony has moved quickly to find the man to portray the late Apple founder Steve Jobs in a biopic.

Michael Fassbender is in early talks to play Jobs in the the Sony film that Danny Boyle is directing, sources confirm. Based on Walter Isaacson's biography Steve Jobs, the real-life drama is directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin. Seth Rogen is in talks to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.

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