However, the casting merry-go-round does not stop there. Jennifer Jason Leigh and Juliette Lewis, who were previously attached, have both left the project, Jeffrey Wright has joined the cast to replace the outgoing Forest Whitaker, and Jason Isaacs is also now expected on the Vancouver set. All this from a film that previously had Michael Fassbender, Alessandro Nivola, Emily Mortimer, Terrence Howard, Juliette Lewis, James Badge Dale, Juno Temple, Leslie Mann and Thomas Haden Church attached at various points, all of whom have been and gone.
Based on the book by Matthew F. Jones, the story follows Rockwell's John Moon, a hunter who accidentally shoots a teenage girl while hunting and then discovers a small fortune while trying to dispose of her body. But is there something wrong with this project? Why does it keep scaring away talent? That being said, the cast they still have isn't half bad, and the story sounds intriguing. Who are we to turn our noses up at any film with Sam Rockwell in the lead? [Variety]
