INDUSTRY NEWS


CHRISTIAN BALE CAST AS STEVE JOBS: Christian Bale will be playing Steve Jobs in a new biopic from Aaron Sorkin. Sorkin confirmed the casting to Bloomberg TV saying, "What we needed was the best actor. It's like the NFL draft. There are some people who make a science out of exactly the guys they need to draft a middle, inside linebacker who can do this...and other teams say, 'Who's the best athlete on the board.' We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range, and that's Chris Bale." The Apple mogul was recently portrayed by Ashton Kutcher in Jobs which received mixed reviews.

TV DRAMA BASED ON ARCHIE CHARACTERS IN DEVELOPMENT: Greg Berlanti, known for his work on Dawson's Creek as well as CW's Arrow and The Flash, is working on a live-action drama based on the characters featured in Archie comics. The show will be called Riverdale -- named for the fictional town where the characters live. According to Deadline, "The series will showcase the eternal love triangle of Archie Andrews, girl-next-door Betty Cooper and rich socialite Veronica Lodge and will include the entire cast of characters from the comic books -- including Archie's rival Reggie Mantle and slacker best friend Jughead Jones. Popular gay character Kevin Keller also will play a pivotal role, with other characters from Archie Comics' expansive library also slated to appear, including Josie and the Pussycats." The show is being developed at Fox.

MARC CHERRY DEVELOPING 'PHANTOM OF THE OPERA' FOR ABC: Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry is working on a television adaptation of Phantom of the Opera for ABC. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will be "a drama with musical elements in the same vein of ABC's Nashville. The new Phantom is described as a contemporary reimagining of Gaston Leroux's gothic novel and set in the sexy and cutthroat world of the modern-day music business." Andrew Lloyd Webber's stage musical adaptation of the work is the longest-running show in Broadway history.
