And, the news comes straight from Canahan himself.

The director told readers on his blog that conflicting shooting dates had forced Clooney to back out of the movie.

“Rough weekend. I had a bad feeling after they pushed ‘Leatherheads’ to April because of the extensive post on that film that something was going to have to give,” Moviehole quoted Canahan, as saying on his blog.

“Also, George is neck deep in the Coen bros. film at the moment and trying to do ‘Michael Clayton’ press which will likely carry over into Awards season…SO…they wanted to see about pushing White Jazz back, which I really don’t want to do.

“I’ve been waiting awhile to make this one and I wasn’t content to sit on my hands.’Right now, (actually it began on friday) we’re in the process of trying to plug a guy into this movie that, if it works, would be pretty f*cking amazing. No, INCREDIBLY f*cking amazing, so we’ll see what happens.

“No tears kids. This is the business. It happens all the time and you’ve got to have the balls and the ability to push past in spite of these setbacks. We march on.”

Clooney is the second actor to drop out of the project, the first being Chris Pine who left Canahan’s movie to play Captain Kirk in JJ Abrams’ ‘Star Trek’. (ANI)
