If the upcoming Steve Jobs film based on Walter Isaacson’s biography of the Apple co-founder had you excited because of Christian Bale’s involvement, take a knee. It seems the actor has pulled out of the film, with The Hollywood Reporter noting he felt he “wasn’t right” to play Jobs.
Last week, Sony put its anticipated Steve Jobs movie in turnaround, and rumor had it Universal Pictures would be stepping up to take over. Nary a week later, that move has been confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter by a Universal spokesperson. Few other official details are available at this time, but sources say the movie was shopped around for over $30 million.
Originally selling for $600, an Apple-1 is set to go up for auction soon. The computer is believed to sell for roughly $500,000, a decent return on investment if it were stock in a company. Dubbed the Rickets Apple-1 Personal Computer (so named after its original owner Charles Rickets, an early adopter if we’ve ever heard of one), you can bid on it yourself in December.
Christian Bale is a great decision to play Steve Jobs. The incoming biopic about the Apple co-founder is set to blow the pretenders (yes, you, Ashton) out of the water, and the addition of Seth Rogen will only enhance the experience.
We've been hearing about the Steve Jobs biopic that Sony is working on for a long time now. The movie has a script written by Aaron Sorkin and had Christian Bale in talks to play Jobs. However, Bale recently backed out of the film leaving things in limbo. After Bale backed away from the film, things turned sour for Sony and the film has been put into turnaround by Sony Pictures.
As one of the founders of Apple Computer Inc., Steve Jobs became synonymous with the brand. But his relationship with the company wasn't always so hallowed and harmonious. After internal disputes with Apple's board of directors in 1985, Jobs left the company to pursue other projects, including NeXT Inc. and Pixar.
The latest player to drop out of Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs biopic is a big one — Sony Pictures, who acquired the rights after Jobs' death in 2011, according to Variety. Christian Bale dropped out of the movie first, he was slated to play the lead role. Michael Fassbender has been announced as his successor to take on the main role of the tech giant.
Over the last several months I've received a lot of iMessages like these from my friends: "Your message just came from your iCloud?" Or... "You're showing up not as a number but on iCloud." I've had it happen the other way, too. A few weeks ago, my editor Jay Yarow sent me an iMessage, but it came from his @icloud.com email address, not the phone number I have saved under his contact information.
