Gwyn Breaks Up With Nic.

In what has proved to be the most awful week in terms of casting news for me (see previous tragedy here) yet another of my dream projects blows up in smoke.
Gwyneth Paltrow has pulled out of The Danish Girl...
The film which would have her co-star with Nicole Kidman in telling the story of the first person to undergo a sex change operation is now casting a new actress to fill in the role Paltrow left-which Charlize Theron had also left before (I'd written about this before as well)
The actress claims she wanted to spend more time with her family.
One can't really blame her for that, at least she didn't quit this to star in Transformers 3.
But really, Gwyn being my favorite actress and all I had my hopes up for this one.
She has been in such few movies lately that whenever I get the chance to see her I am beyond thrilled (you should hear my squeal of delight every time I see her kiss and dump that helmet on the Iron Man 2 trailer).
I miss her...

Although I'm nowhere near a big fan of Gwyn as you it's a real pity that she backed out. Is this film ever going to get made? This reminds me of that other Kidman flick that never was made (Need, with Naomi Watts)...maybe Watts could take the role though.

I'm hoping that Nicole will delay it so much that Gwyn will be able to get back in by the time they finally start shooting, although Watts as replacement would be divine.

Aw...I was actually looking forward to this...

Me too Simon! Let's cross our fingers so she gets back on it.
