Although he was set up to direct and star in The Garden of Last Days, James Franco has reportedly bailed on the picture two weeks before it was scheduled to begin production.  The adaptation of the Andre Dubus III novel was to center on a contemporary American thriller that tells the tales of three strangers whose paths intersect one September night in a Florida strip club.  Set to start shooting in New York on July 10th, the picture will now shut down completely with Franco exiting due to a disagreement with financial backer Millenium over the particular crew he wanted to hire.  Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) recently signed on to star, but it looks like the picture is not meant to be.  Hit the jump for more.
