While Sony hoped DiCaprio could come back to the Jobs project after filming The Revenant, sources say the actor plans to take some time off acting after completing the film.

The still-untitled Jobs biopic will be penned by Aaron Sorking based on a biography by Walter Isaacson. New dad Ashton Kutcher previously played the Apple co-founder in the 2013 biopic Jobs.
