We have a bit of casting and anti-casting news for you this morning. First up in anti-casting, Daniel Craig has unexpectedly dropped out of the courtroom drama The Whole Truth slightly a week before filming was set to begin. Although plot details are scarce, Craig was set to play a district attorney and star alongside Renee Zellweger and Gabriel Basso (Super 8). Danny Huston and other actors were in talks to co-star, but according to THR, Craig’s exit has put these negotiations in limbo. The production is now scrambling to find a replacement, and the start date might be pushed back three weeks. Courtney Hunt (Frozen River) is set to direct a script by Nicholas Kazan (Fallen). It will be interesting to find out why Craig exited the project so close to the start date.
