Just one day after photos of him filming scenes for Woody Allen’s new period film pop up online, actor Bruce Willis has seemingly left the production.
Deadline reports that Allen’s reps have confirmed the departure of Willis, saying the actor was “hobbled by his other plan to take the Broadway stage in the adaptation of the Stephen King bestseller and movie classic ‘Misery’.”
Because of this Allen will recast in time to keep the production on schedule. However, the fact that Willis has already been seen shooting scenes for the film and that any Broadway commitments would’ve been made well in advance means no-one is really believing the official line being spouted.
Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeannie Berlin, The Strain’s Corey Stoll, Ken Stott Anna Camp, Stephen Kunken, Sari Lennick and Paul Schneider also star in the film which is due out next year.
