The news has taken Hollywood watchers by a bit of surprise as Gosling not only dropped out just a day before shooting began, but also because he had piled on 20 pounds and grown a beard just for the role.

According to the Daily Variety it was ‘creative differences’ that made the actor opt out of the movie.

Wahlberg will now be playing the role of Susie Salmon’s father Jack in the Peter Jackson-directed movie which revolves around a couple whose world is shattered after their daughter is murdered. The girl watches over her family and her killer from heaven.

The pic also stars Rachel Weiz as Susie’s mother, and Susan Sarandon as Grandmother Lynn, and Irish newcomer Saoirse Ronan, 13, as Susie Salmon.

Stanley Tucci plays Mr Harvey the man who murders the little girl.

Michael Imperioli from The Sopranos is police detective Len Fenerman. (ANI)
