Much ado about nothing: Jake backs out of Motor City
Well it was good till it lasted but it looks like scheduling issues made Jake back out from the Motor City project. All in all, I can’t say I’m relieved. All this talk about him first in the project and immediately after out of it doesn’t help his reputation of being a difficult actor EDITED TO ADD >>>(shared by common people and not by those who count, namely directors, producers and the like).<<< We’ll never know the true reasons behind this sudden change of plan but I think WME should make a public announcement to prevent more unpleasant rumors about Jake’s attitude.
It looked good there for a day but Jake Gyllenhaal’s deal to star in the Albert Hughes-directed Motor Cityhas veered off the road. Talks fell apart, over scheduling, I hear. The actor wanted to push the dates and financier Dark Castle did not.
I may be overly optimistic, but I hope Jake’s real reason behind this decision is that some other project came up. Fingers crossed.
