AICN reports that director Frank Darabont has left the production of the upcoming psychological thriller “Law Abiding Citizen”.
The story follows successful assistant D.A. (Gerard Butler) who finds himself at the center of a vigilante plot hatched by a traumatized victim of the legal system (Jamie Foxx).
Foxx’s character is devastated to learn that, because of a plea bargain, one of his wife and daughter’s murderers will be set free. Soon he unleashes revenge on the killers and those who made the deal.
Darabont left the production a little over a week ago and the split wasn’t amicable. No word yet as to how this affects production.
