colin firth quits paddington movie voice actor

Did anyone else notice that Paddington didn't speak at all in the recently released trailer? Well, it turns out that wasn't just a tease.

They REALLY don't have a voice actor anymore!

Colin Firth has released a statement confirming that he has left the project despite the VERY late date! And he gave Gwyneth Paltrow a little jab in the process! He said:

"It's been bittersweet to see this delightful creature take shape and come to the sad realisation that he simply doesn't have my voice. After a period of denial we've chosen conscious uncoupling. I've had the joy of seeing most of the film and it's going to be quite wonderful. I still feel rather protective of this bear and I'm pestering them all with suggestions for finding a voice worthy of him."

Director Paul King wants it to be clear Colin shouldn't bear the responsibility. He claims it was an amicable split, saying:

"Colin Firth has been a joy to collaborate with and I cannot thank him enough for his contribution to Paddington. We love the voice and we love the bear - but as our young bear came into being we agreed that the two didn't seem to fit. So, with somewhat heavy hearts we decided to part ways. We are excited about the next chapter for Paddington, ensuring his big-screen debut is magnificent."

This is really late in the process to replace the lead actor! And with the film coming out in November of this year, they'll have their work cut out for them!

We're guessing a replacement will be announced in the next few days.

    Dear Star, I was given water and soap, just Saturday, July 12, 2014. Already from the first, a look-alike of the star, he gave me a faded postcard of the Lateran, where they exit teacher of religion. perhaps that this star is linked to teacher? Then, I noticed a goldsmith's shop, where the antique rings, made me effect. but one in particular, I really tried. Rimmed sapphire and diamonds at the center to the sides. As I discussed in the shop with the goldsmith! I'll come quà with the star, relaunching the famous harbor. I'll make a meal, where, in the rustic restaurant in front of the sea, there hangs a violin. "Go soap and water," was the arrow, and the star, is in the copertina.Sarà therefore an appointment romantiko?
