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

Filed under: Film FlickersChristian BaleGIFs

"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.

Christian Bale Is David Fincher's Choice To Play Steve Jobs In Biopic! We Give This iDea A Huge App…lause!

1bruce wayne and lucius fox the dark knight 2015109 1024 683

This is the Steve Jobs casting choice that Gotham deserves!

In an AH-Mazing bit of news, director David Fincher has reportedly said he'd only direct the Aaron Sorkin-written Jobs biopic if Christian Bale decided to play that American who hustled to create and lead Apple to its golden age!

No word yet on whether Christian would accept the part, but look at him! He looks exactly like him! You don't need to be in the genius bar to see the resemblance!

Likewise, Sony has not commented nor has producer Mark Gordon's company responded to this story.

CLINK. CLINK. Wait, what's that sound? Oh, that's just the noise of dozens of Oscars preemptively falling from the sky for this project!

We hope Christian takes the Job….s.

Philip Seymour Hoffman Predicted His Death Would Save At Least 10 Lives!

How's this for a silver lining?

Philip Seymour Hoffman's untimely death, while inarguably tragic, saved lives.

Well, that's the theory at least.

Writer, director, and fellow addict Aaron Sorkin first met Philip on the set of Charlie Wilson's War. As they bonded over cigarettes, coffee, and recovery from substance abuse, they also admitted to each other that there was at least a decent chance that addiction might be what finally kills each of them.

According to Aaron, however, the Oscar-winning actor was able to find the bright side.

Phil, as Aaron called him, confessed:

Olivia Munn has a breakthrough at Variety's Breakthrough of the Year Awards!

Now we have PHYSICAL PROOF that there’s no drama between these two!!

Olivia Munn not only attended the Variety Breakthrough of the Year Awards in Las Vegas last night, she also won an award there!

And the lucky presenter was none other than Aaron Sorkin, the Newsroom showrunner that Olivia was supposedly butting heads with.

Aaron presented Miz Munn with both the award AND a smooch on the cheek, thus dispelling rumors of the tiff once and for all!

We bet the actress’ flattering Victoria Beckham dress probs only added to the incentive to kiss her, LOLz!!

And those Jimmy Choo pumps brought her to just the right height for a solid peck on the cheek, don't you agree??

Loving it! Congrats on the win, gurl!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsOlivia MunnGIFs

Olivia Munn has been a standout on the first two seasons of HBO's acclaimed The Newsroom. But has she let it go to her head?

According to an inside source, Olivia has become something of a know-it-all on set, giving veteran showrunner Aaron Sorkin tons of notes! The source says:

"Olivia was acting like one of his co-writers instead of like a professional actress, and Aaron didn’t appreciate hearing her opinions on everything, especially since he took a real risk in the show’s first year by hiring her."

And the rift isn't just between Olivia and Aaron. According to the source, the entire cast is feeling it, including star Jeff Daniels!

And all this bad blood may lead to a withdrawal of Olivia's character! The source says:
