If anyone would know how to manipulate circuity and metal into an iPod, it'd be Magneto! Okay, Steve Jobs too, we guess.

It was less than a week ago that Sony Pictures dropped the Aaron Sorkin-penned Steve Jobs biopic, but Universal Pictures has just swooped in and picked it right up!

It's like the movie had under 10% battery life, and then your bestie who borrowed your charger admitted he lost it, but then someone just whipped out a new charger! And that person was… Michael Fassbender.

That's right, instead of a Christian Bale Jobs, Michael will be playing the part of the late Apple co-founder!

We're just so glad an actor finally committed to the part. With Danny Boyle attached to direct, you just know it's going to be incredible.

Congrats to Michael, and congrats to Universal! Congrats to us too! This movie is sure to amaze, and we'd gladly wait outside for a ticket as long as would for a 6 Plus!

But fans aren't the only ones who were affected but the news. Previous Caped Crusaders were as well!

Until now, Christian Bale has kept his reaction to himself, and it may be because he was a touch embarrassed!

The Steve Jobs Movie Has Been Dropped Like An iPhone! Is It All Because Christian Bailed Out?

"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!

Christian Bale and Ben Affleck were nowhere to be found. LOLz!

Christian Bale Drops The Steve Jobs Biopic! Will The Movie Shatter Like An iPhone Screen??

| Filed under: Film FlickersChristian BaleGIFs

no title

This Steve Jobs biopic is a lot like iTunes- everything seems fantastic, and then we get another update that ruins everything!

In the latest bad news for the untitled project, Christian Bale has reportedly dropped out as the lead!

[ Related: Man Suffers Explosion In Pants & Not The Good Kind! ]

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

According to the latest reports, the Dark Knight star went through a long deliberation process over the film but ultimately decided he just wasn't right for the part.

And this is after Leonardo DiCaprio also passed after showing a lot of early interest.

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.

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.
