Actor Christian Bale will not play Steve Jobs in the upcoming biopic of the Apple co-founder’s life.

Citing anonymous sources, the Hollywood Reporter says Bale withdrew himself from the casting after experiencing conflicting feelings about playing Jobs.

The film, which has been written by Aaron Sorkin, already lost a director in David Fincher and is now being helmed by Danny Boyle. It reportedly follows Jobs preparing for three different Apple presentations at different stages of his life.

It’s been reported that Seth Rogen is in discussions to play co-founder Steve Wozniak.
