Studio Pulls Out Of Soderbergh Film When They Hear Blake Lively Is The Star!

blake lively steven soderbergh side effects annapurna pictures pulls out

Ouch!!!

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!!

Thoughts??

    just becuause shes screwing leading men doesnt mean shes up to a leading woman role she should still be sharing screen time with other leading woman and building up to a lead role maybe if she was screwing brad pitt shed have a hope ..

    as for this "We were actually looking forward to seeing Blake play a pill-popping meltdown waiting to happen!!" lolololol maybe someone else would be more suitable for lead if thats the prerequisite …

    She was fantastic in The Town - really showed her acting chops in that.

    Re: missjennifer – She sure was. I'd soon see her than Michelle Williams or Mara Rooney. They don't seem to have their finger on today's pulse.

    Nobody at Annapurna Pictures she can sleep with to secure the part?

    I don't understand how anyone can find this woman attractive. She looks like a transvestite…and that mole is annoying.

    Fucking every director/producer/casting person for a role doesn't mean you will always get the role. And it also doesn't mean you are talented enough to pull the role off either.

    Lol, what do you expect? She's on Gossip Girl…and she was in the traveling pants movies…go crawl back under that rock you came from Blake, you suck.

    LMAO. Way to deflect attention from Soderbergh's expensive and HORRIBLE flop, "Haywire." I'm betting that train wreck had more to do with the studio's decision that rumors about Blake's casting.

    Well, that's what you get for being a hollywood slut.

    Guess someone didn't see The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. To have such beauty and vulnerability on screen. I've never seen Gossip Girl. I assume her alliance with that is what makes producer's trepidicious.

    Re: Porpheria – I saw Haywire. It had it's problems but there were some good points. They missed out by not growing the initial "strange" relationship between the star and the young man she kidnapped. It definately could have been tweeked. It suffered from a lack of script and the fact that, I am guessing, everyone was so fired up at seeing this excellent mixed martial arts expert that is so very attractive. One want's to cash in on that ASAP.
