"Let me say this in a way you'll understand. No Christian Bale?! NO MOVIE!!"
At least that's how we imagine it went down over at Sony.
After Christian bailed on the project, it looks like the Steve Jobs biopic is no more.

The film, which was written by Newsroom creator Aaron Sorkin and was set to be directed by Slumdog Millionaire's Danny Boyle, has been put in turnaround.
That's a Hollywood euphemism for "not being worked on anymore."
Even with names like Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, and Seth Rogen mentioned in relation to the biopic, it looks like the project has run out of battery power.
The movie sounded like a winner, so who knows? Maybe it'll find its feet somewhere else.
A courthouse might be a place you'd expect to find justice…
And where there's justice, there are BATS!
The 5th Judicial District Courthouse in St. George, Utah found this out recently when over 50 Brazilian free-tailed bats were found inside the building!

We previously reported that screenwriter Aaron Sorkin had confirmed Christian as the late Apple co-founder, but it seems things have changed.

Seth Rogen is currently in negotiations to play Jobs' partner Steve Wozniak, but we could see how not having Christian Bale on board might cause him to think different too.
This update is going to make you want to restart!

With Christian Bale starring as Mr. Jobs, this movie just keeps on getting better. It's like recieving-a-new-operating-system level of better.
Meanwhile, Jessica Chastain is being considered for an unspecified role. Maybe Siri? Just kidding, that's ridiculous.
The movie, written by Aaron Sorkin and to be directed by Danny Boyle, will be comprised of three extended scenes focusing on the backstage drama before three different product launches.
Well, we're pumped for Seth! This could be his big dramatic break.
It's official! Christian Bale will play Steve Jobs!

Writer Aaron Sorkin confirmed the casting with glowing praise, saying:
"We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that's Chris Bale."
Aaron says the Dark Knight star didn't even have to audition! He says:
We always knew proofreading mattered!
When Christian Bale signed on to be in The Machinist, he wasn't supposed to get THAT skinny!
In fact, the 6'2" actor did it all because of a little editorial oversight.
