Steve Jobs Movie Goes Kaput at Sony

More trouble for the Steve Jobs movie has come down, and now apparently the project is dead, as they say in the biz, at Sony, who got the official rights to Steve’s life after he passed away. In recent weeks, Christian Bale was up to play Jobs, then he left the project at the eleventh hour.

Early reviews for Mockingjay Part One...
