Steve Jobs' biopic put on hold
Los Angeles: Late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs' biopic has reportedly been put on hold after Sony Pictures declined to produce the project.
The much anticipated movie, which was being produced by Scott Rudin, Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady and was to be directed by Danny Boyle from a script written by Aaron Sorkin, is now waiting for another studios to produce it.
According to a source, Boyle needed the film to go into production in January, because he had a short timespan before starting another project.
But on the other side, Sony has several movies already in production for 2015 and wanted the film to shoot later, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
Universal studios is said to be interested in the project with an eye to next year's awards season. However, the officials have declined to comment.
Even the film has struggled to cast a lead, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale both circling for a time. Bale withdrew earlier this month, with Michael Fassbender the latest expressing interest in playing Jobs.
