We bet this one has to hurt!! Yikes!!
According to inside sources, as soon as Annapurna Pictures heard Blake Lively was cast in Steven Soderbergh's Side Effects, they decided to pull out of financing…
But here's the worst part — despite strong rumors and spoken interest in Blake playing the lead, nothing had been signed or confirmed.
So even though they'll probably use other funding, will Blake stick around and commit to it??
If she thinks she can prove Annapurna wrong, it could be a big blow to them. But just in case, rumors say Michelle Williams and Rooney Mara are also options for the role.
We were actually looking forward to seeing Blake play a pill-popping meltdown waiting to happen!!
