The Aaron Sorkin penned, Danny Boyle helmed Steve Jobs biopic is in trouble again. Just weeks after confirming then losing Christian Bale as its lead, the film has now been dropped by Sony, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The massively-hyped movie, based on Walter Isaacson’s biography of Jobs, is now being pitched to other studios. Universal is rumoured to be interested in picking up the project but has yet to say anything officially.

One source told The Hollywood Reporter that Boyle could also be off the project if it doesn’t go into production by January. Steve Jobs certainly wouldn’t have stood for all this confusion.
