Rooney Mara exits Will Smith-led drama Collateral Beauty

Rooney Mara

Rooney Mara was set to star alongside her PAN co-star Hugh Jackman in COLLATERAL BEAUTY, but he had to leave the film due to his WOLVERINE 3 commitments, and was replaced by Will Smith. Now Deadline is reporting that Mara has also exited the project. There's no details on why the actress dropped out of the planned film, but she may want a break after filming Jim Sheridans' THE SECRET OF SCRIPTURE, Benedict Andrews' BLACKBIRD and Garth Davis' LION back-to-back-to-back, and will also be doing awards campaigning soon for Todd Haynes' CAROL.

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL) is set to direct from a script by SAN ANDREAS and 21 scribe Allan Loeb, and filming is expected to begin next month. The drama will follow "a New York advertising executive who experiences a deep personal tragedy. His colleagues devise an unconventional means of breaking him out of his depression, which works, but not in a way that anyone imagined." Deadline has also learned that New Line has picked up the worldwide rights to the upcoming film. Who would you like to see star opposite Will Smith in COLLATERAL BEAUTY?

Rooney Mara's CAROL will open in limited release in the U.S. on November 20, 2015, while Smith can be seen next in CONCUSSION, which is due in theaters on December 25, 2015.

Second time!!!

Why do younger Caucasian actresses not named Margot Robbie not want to work with Will? Didn't Kristen Stewart leave Focus after Batfleck left the movie? Now Rooney. At least Rooney didn't have a BS excuse like Stewart had for Will "being too old"...

No surprise there...

Her family owns a football team so with Will Smith's CONCUSSION about to go to war with the NFL, of course she would bail. Also, Smith will probably be railed against by the NFL and their proxies, which could harm the success of those films, so actors may stay away to not hurt their careers.

Didn't know this, cool fact. And it sounds very plausible.
