Sony Pictures Abandons Steve Jobs Biopic

By Gary Cutlack on at

The film we've been banging on about for ages while charting its tormented actor choosing process, looks like it won't happen as soon as expected -- if at all. Sony Pictures has pulled its backing from the project, leaving writer Aaron Sorkin without anyone to pick up the tab.

Sources quoted by Deadline suggest Universal may be keen on picking up the Steve/Apple biopic project, although, with an actor still to sign on to play the part of Jobs, it may end up being stuck in development hell for quite some time yet. [Variety]
