Ian McKellan Dropping Out Of The Hobbit?

Filed under: Film Flickers

If they don't figure all of their shiz out, this movie is going to implode in on itself!

Production of The Hobbit, the prequel to The Lord of the Rings films, has pretty much been troubled since day one, but now we're hearing news that Sir Ian McKellen may put the final nail in the coffin - by dropping out as Gandalf!

He reveals:

"Well I'm not under contract and my time is running out and I'm enjoying working in the theatre and frankly, I would like to race after doing 'Waiting For Godot,' get on with doing another play but we'll have to see. I don't give the producers the impression that I'm sitting waiting. What it will be I genuinely don't know. It'll either be, we're going ahead or we're not."

Sounds like he's just as fed up as everyone else with this mess of a movie!

Understandably so! We'd be over it, too!

Thoughts??

Devastating News For Scream 4 - Writer Kevin Williamson Replaced!

wenn2765956jb.jpg

We could tell that there were some creative conflicts, but this is terrible, terrible news.

Kevin Williamson has reportedly dropped out of production of Scream 4, and is being replaced by the writer who nearly killed the series with his shiteous Scream 3, Ehren Kruger.

We don't care that he wrote The Ring - let's be real, even Parker Posey and Jenny McCarthy couldn't save the third movie!

Apparently, Williamson is said to no longer have any involvement in the series, and the changes being made with the script are what's causing the actors to drop out.

According to sources, Lauren Graham's character was originally "a fun role. Not big, but it had some meaty scenes." In Kruger's revision, "the part was reduced. She had like four lines."

The deputy sheriff role, originally given to Lake Bell, has also been cut dramatically, and even Hayden Pain-in-the-Ass is "beyond frustrated with the changes" because her character "used to be really sharp" but is now "dumbed down significantly".

Another source explains:

"The script changes have put a real strain on the cast. The original 'Scream' cast members aren't happy with the way that things are happening, so it's probably a good thing that [Graham] dropped out before things get messy."

And it appears that even poor director Wes Craven is frustrated - he just took to his Twitter to write:

I have not been given control of the script. #SCREAM4

Sounds to us like the studio got involved and took everything great about this movie and completely fucked it up.

We hope the studio execs get their heads out of their ass and just let Wes and company do what they do best, before this entire project implodes in on itself!

Get on your hands and knees and beg Kevin Williamson back - NOW!

Thoughts??

Mariah Carey Ruined Tyler Perry's Vacation

wenn549342108.jpg

Tyler Perry is peeved that Mariah Carey dropped out of his film For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf less than a week before filming, leaving him no choice but to cut his vacation short to find a replacement.

The writer/director/producer wrote this to his fans:

"I said, 'What? You're kidding me?,' It's five days before she has to go to work; nobody does that. We have a deal. I was told that we got a call, saying that even though our deal was done, she had been advised by her doctor not to do the film. I said, 'What? You know I want a doctor's note, don't you? LOL."

He does add however, that he knows Mariah didn't do it on purpose, saying:

"What I do know of [Carey] is that she is a professional and wouldn't back out of a deal unless it was a major issue. So, whatever is going on, I wish her and Nick [Cannon] the best and she has all my love, prayers and support. All I know is that I’m waiting just like the rest of the world to find out what happened. I just wish I could have finished my Mai Tai before I had to get back and re-cast this role!"

Come on, Mariah! Just announce the pregnancy already!

Julianne Hough Is Over Footloose Too!!

wenn2812865jb.jpg

The remake of Footloose is falling apart before our very eyes!

Now that Chace Crawford has dropped out, it looks as though his only set co-star, Julianne Hough, will be bailing, as well!

She revealed:

"It sucks. His schedule couldn't work because of Gossip Girl and mine almost didn't work because of DWTS, so we're still actually working on mine to see if I can do it."

Too bad! It's probably for the best though.

With all this pre-production dramz, we're sure it's going to be a disaster!

We think that the producers should probably quit while they're ahead and throw in the towel on this one!

What do U think?? Do U still want to see a Footloose remake??

Gwyneth Drops Out Of Her Latest Film!

lonelygwyneth2010.jpg

Gwyneth Paltrow has pulled out of her latest film, The Danish Girl, to spend more time with her family. Her reasoning for dropping out was, "Some days I feel like everyone in my world has plugged themselves into my kidneys. I'm so tired."

Sounds a little dramatic, dontcha think??

However, sources are saying that actually, Gwyneth failed to bond with her Danish Girl co-star, Nicole Kidman.

Gwynnie was feeling so isolated while shooting her last film, Love Don't Let Me Down, in Nashville, she was hoping to become friends with Nicole who lives nearby. Sources said,

"Gwyneth made the effort to get in touch with Nicole, but Nicole declined."

Even her family piped in and said,

"Gwyneth is on her own and lonely, it would have been nice for Nicole to make the effort."

Way harsh, Nicole!

Luckily, Gwyneth has her ex-husband by her side. She told Harper's Bazaar that when she told hubby, Chris Martin, about her choice to leave the film, he was nothing but supportive.

When I pulled out, he said, 'I think you'll be happy with your decision.' I really lucked out with him. He's deeply lovely and special.

Aw, maybe those two crazy kids can make it after all.
