Hallstrom drops Crowe

02.07.2002

It's a day of directors here at JoBlo, what with Jonathan Mostow, Steven Soderbergh and David Fincher.  Now we've got another famed director with another new project - Lasse Hallstrom has signed on to direct A CONSPIRACY OF PAPER for Miramax.  In doing so, Hallstrom has dropped out of CINDERELLA MAN, a boxing film that was to star Russell Crowe and Renee Zellweger.  That film was supposed to start filming this spring but was delayed over a year when Crowe committed to FAR SIDE OF THE WORD (formerly MASTER AND COMMANDER) with Peter Weir.  Hallstrom will reteam with his CHOCOLAT writer Robert Nelson Jacobs (the words I've dreaded to hear - from the team that brought you CHOCOLAT...) to tell the story of the birth of the stock market in 18th century London.  Certainly sounds like a rip-roaring good time...
