Fassbender becomes the third man to be reported to be in line for the role. Before Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio passed in order to take a break from acting.
Seth Rogen is also in talks to star as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
Danny Boyle is directing from Aaron Sorkin’s script based on Walter Isaacson’s biography “Steve Jobs”.
Producers are Scott Rudin, Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady.
