It has been confirmed that Rise of the Planet of the Apes actor James Franco has pulled out of working on the movie The Iceman. The official reason has not been given but it is believed that there was a difference of opinion regarding the contract offered to James.
However, an insider for the movie insists that it was not about money, explaining, “James pulled out because he couldn’t come to an agreement on key contractual issues that didn’t involve financial terms. Now it looks like this project might fall apart.”
James Franco has recently been filming the Sam Raimi movie Oz: The Great and Powerful alongside Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams. Franco was due to star alongside Michael Shannon and Ray Liotta in The Iceman but he will now be replaced.
