Another day, another development for Sony's Steve Jobs biopic! Christian Bale abruptly dropped out of the ambitious film only yesterday, but director Danny Boyle and the studio have already set their sights on one of the few leading men who can match his intensity: Michael Fassbender.

Christian Bale has abruptly pulled out of Danny Boyle's planned Steve Jobs biopic, just two weeks after entering discussions with Sony Pictures and Boyle over playing the iconic Apple CEO. Though Bale hadn't officially signed for the part (and hadn't even begun contract negotiations), his participation was considered a near certainly and his unexpected departure is another casting blow for the project, which already had Leonardo DiCaprio turn down the starring role.
Danny Boyle's upcoming Steve Jobs biopic has already found its leading man in Christian Bale, but now the production is looking to cast the role of Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple. And they couldn't have found an actor more disparate than Christian Bale for the part: Seth Rogen is currently in talks to join the film.
'The Dark Knight' is one of the most popular superhero movies ever. Heck, it might even be one of the most popular movies of any genre in the past 10 years. But, even if you think you've seen and read all there is on 'The Dark Knight,' you still might not know everything there is to know about one of the biggest movies of all-time.
"Why apples, Master Jobs?" "Apples frighten me." As Christian Bale inches ever closer to playing Steve Jobs in Aaron Sorkin's long-in-the-making biopic, expectations only continue to ratchet up. What would Bale-as-Jobs look like? How high would the intensity level be? Will there be much growling? Unexpectedly enough, Conan O'Brien has the answers you seek.
A little while back, director David Fincher was looking to cast Christian Bale as Steve Jobs in an untitled biopic about the life of the Apple co-founder written by Aaron Sorkin. Then Fincher left and the project and so did Bale. Now, with Danny Boyle at the helm, Bale has once again returned to the film and is currently in negotiations to take the part.
It looks like director Danny Boyle will have to find a new Steve Jobs for his upcoming biopic, as Leonardo DiCaprio has formally exited the project. The actor has backed out to star in another film instead, and now the studio has their eyes on a few replacements, including original choice Christian Bale.
Twentieth Century Fox unleashed the new 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' trailer unto the world, and if you weren't already excited to delve into Ridley Scott's vision of Moses as he frees the Egyptian slaves, this new look might get your heart racing.
One of the most intriguing films of the upcoming fall movie season is Ridley Scott's 'Exodus: Gods and Kings,' a massive epic that tells the Biblical story of Moses and his brother Ramses, played by Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton, respectively. While it's already drawn some controversy for its mostly white cast, we can't help but be curious about a new Ridley Scott film, particularly a sprawling action drama set in Biblical times. Curious indeed. And thanks to this new featurette, we can go behind the scenes of 'Exodus' to see Scott putting it all together.
Just yesterday we learned that Benedict Cumberbatch of 'The Hobbit' and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' fame was the first to sign on to 'Jungle Book: Origins,' the directorial debut of the great motion-capture artist Andy Serkis. While Disney's competing 'Jungle Book' movie already solidified the majority of its cast, Warner Bros. was quietly doing the same, and now we have the names of seven other stars joining Cumberbatch and Serkis.
