Hollywood actor James Franco, who was recently in news for hosting the show of Oscar Awards 2011, is said to have walked out of the upcoming drama While We're Young, which was due to begin filming in New York in June, 2011. According to sources, the actor was forced to take this decision when he faced dates clashing with another movie.
Earlier, it was reported that the 127 Hours star would play a free-spirited young man, who inspires an uptight documentarian played by Ben Stiller. But now, James Franco has left the project after the scheduling conflicts with Oz, the Great and Powerful. Now, the movie bosses are said be looking for another suitable actor for the lead role in While We're Young.
It should be recalled here that actress Cate Blanchett was roped in to play Ben Stiller's onscreen wife, but she dropped out of Noah Baumbach's project due to unknown reason. Now, the walk out of James Franco, who is currently busy with movies like Your Highness, Rise of the Apes, In Praise of Shadows, is coming as a big blow to the producers of the film.
