Sucks for you, buddy!
Josh Brolin's new Universal flick, Cartel, had been canned only five weeks away from production due to concerns about the budget, the script, and the "complexities of shooting a drug-related drama on location in Mexico."
We could see how that could be a problem.
The studio released an official statement this morning, saying:
"Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment ceased pre-production of Cartel today. As much as we had hoped to begin filming this spring in Mexico City, the studio and its producing partners did not feel it was creatively ready to move forward under the timetable and budget we had established. We thank all of the filmmakers, cast and crew for their work during pre-production."
Wonder what crappy, blockbuster franchise they will filter these funds too instead?
