According to Deadline, "Motor City," the revenge thriller from solo Hughes brother Albert Hughes that was originally set to star Dominic Cooper… Then Jake Gyllenhaal… Then Gerard Butler… Has been shut down for good, with the cast being sent home over the weekend. We're pretty sure that this movie accidentally ran over a young gypsy while on vacation in Europe because this shit seems cursed.

At this point, "Motor City" is more known for the revolving door of its casting process, and the actors who have come and gone on the project, than anything else. But now the picture is taking a new shape, with a brand new villain and, even more, an actual production schedule.

After seeing various folks like Jake Gyllenhaal, Dominic Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Clive Owen, Amber Heard and Gary Oldman come and go from the long developing "Motor City," director Albert Hughes will probably take whoever he can get at this point. Right now, Gerard Butler is sitting in the lead role, and now he's got a co-star.

Already bouncing from Chris Evans to Dominic Cooper to Jake Gyllenhaal -- who dropped out exactly one day after news of his coming aboard hit the web -- Albert Hughes has had a helluva time finding a leading man for "Motor City." But, in a nice stroke of luck, he might have landed on yet another quality leading man.

Well, the writing was on the wall a few weeks ago when Dominic Cooper replaced Clive Owen in the ensemble drama "Cities," but it seems it'll just be a bit of musical chairs as Cooper himself has now been replaced in "Motor City."

Dominic Cooper has been on a tear lately, raising his profile in 2011 thanks to his dual role turn in "The Devil's Double" and his stint in the comic book tentpole "Captain America: The First Avenger." But it seems there may be some changes on the horizon for the actor. He's got a handful of projects on the way -- "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," "Summer In February," "Half Of A Yellow Sun," "Motor City" -- with his calendar becoming full, and it seems his latest manuever may mean dropping the latter studio pic as a result.
