Ten years ago we had Steve Jobs, Bob Hope, and Johnny Cash… and now, we might not even have a second Steve Jobs movie.
Sony Pictures has decided to abandon the film adaptation of Walter Isaacson’s biography of Apple founder Steve Jobs, Variety’s Dave McNary reports. The film, which was set to be adapted by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle, made headlines recently when Christian Bale declined the role of Apple’s temperamental cofounder. Seth Rogen was reportedly set to play Apple’s other founder, Steve Wozniak.
The studio declined to comment. And it is unclear why the decision to drop the film was made.
A Jobs movie by Sorkin might not be completely done for, however. A source tells McNary that Universal may pick up the film.
