Should they just quit now? First Michael Fassbender leaves along with a large chunk of the funding, then Lynne Ramsay rather publicly exits and is followed by Jude Law. Joel Edgerton was bumped up to Fassbender's role, then Bradley Cooper was cast in Edgerton's old role, the one vacated by Law. Gavin O'Connor came in to direct, and now Cooper has also been forced to exit the production. Blame it on the Boston bombers - Cooper's schedule has been upset by the bombings, which have delayed shooting on David O. Russell's upcoming American Hustle, which stars Cooper in a prominent role. Rumours have it that Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jake Gyllenhaal, Tom Hiddleston and Tobey Maguire are being considered as replacements. Not that I'm not feeling those guys (well, Tobey Maguire...), but jumping aboard a sinking ship is not a strategy I would recommend. It's time to fuck this one in the ass!
