Daniel Craig abruptly drops out of courtroom drama 'The Whole Truth' days before filming start date

By Gina DiFalco,

Daniel Craig has abruptly dropped out of the courtroom indie film The Whole Truth, also starring Renee Zellweger, which was supposed to start filming in Boston, Massachusetts on Friday, April 14. Craig has been seen in the city preparing for the role, but sources say he has definitely dropped out.

The news was first reported by Boson Globe, whose sources confirmed the movie’s future is in jeopardy because of Craig’s departure.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, production will reportedly be halted for three weeks as producers search for a new male lead. There were some actors who were in negotiations to star in the film before Craig joined, such as Danny Huston, who are now in negotiations again.

The project, which would’ve seen Craig star as a district attorney, was announced at the Berlin Film Festival in February and also stars Gabriel Basso. Courtney Hunt is directing the Nicholas Kazan script with Richard Suckle producing.
