Just two weeks after Hollywood confirmed Christian Bale as the new Steve Jobs in an upcoming biopic, it seems the actor has exited the project. The Hollywood Reporter claims Bale decided the role was not right for him and has withdrawn. The film was slated to begin shooting this winter.

It is unclear whether this decision will affect Seth Rogen, who was recently casted as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. Will the team revert back to Ashton Kutcher for the Job? We’ll just have to wait and see.
