Leonardo DiCaprio Will No Longer Pretend To Be Steve Jobs

October 3, 2014


Typical of an expensive, hotly-anticipated Apple product, Sony's Steve Jobs movie is yet again in disrepair.

As you may recall, it was just in April that the studio first lost a vital component of their shiny new product when David Fincher walked away over issues in pay and marketing control. The loss of Fincher drove Sony to buy a completely functional but not quite as sleek off-brand replacement part in Danny Boyle, and though that's held together just fine, now the main screen element has fallen out. According to The Hollywood Reporter, potential star Leonardo DiCaprio has exited the project to instead shoot Iñárritu's The Revenant this fall, thus leaving the film without a Jobs.

The report claims no other actors have yet been offered the part but says a few are being eyed as possibilities, such as pretty much anyone from American Hustle or Good Will Hunting: Christian Bale (Fincher's original choice), Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Bradley Cooper are said to be the frontrunners. Please wait the official announcement before bitching about how these new models aren't even any thinner.
