I guess all the interviews in Cannes about Gerry being excited to work with Gary are now moot.

From Variety Full article here:

Dark Castle is currently working with Emmett/Furla Films on Albert Hughes' actioner "Motor City," which has Gerard Butler attached to star, though Gary Oldman and Amber Heard are no longer involved with the project.

That's a shame. Gary Oldman is a good actor.

Gary Oldman & Amber Heard Exit Albert Hughes' 'Motor City'


Albert Hughes just can't catch a break with casting for his latest effort, "Motor City." After a lengthy search for a male lead that saw names like Chris Evans, Dominic Cooper, Jake Gyllenhaal and Jeremy Renner all linked before Gerard Butler jumped on board, the project has now hit another wall, losing its villain and female lead.

Variety report that Gary Oldman and Amber Heard have now both departed the Dark Castle project for reasons unknown, though we imagine the delayed schedule may be to blame (lensing was originally slated to begin in the spring). This summer, Heard is set to shoot Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" while Oldman has Robert Luketic's "Paranoia" on deck (and likely press rounds for "The Dark Knight Rises").

It's yet another setback but it's definitely still moving forward for Hughes with Variety noting that Dark Castle are "currently working" on it. Scripted by Chad St. John, the 2009 Black List script follows a small time crook who is framed and sent to jail, then seeks revenge on those who put him there. Most notable, though, is that the protagonist played by Butler apparently only has one line of dialogue throughout the whole film.

Interestingly, the film will mark Hughes' first solo effort behind the camera, in the past having teamed with twin brother Allen on films such as "The Book Of Eli" and "From Hell," as well their memorable debut feature "Menace II Society." Allen is also cooking up his own solo effort, the similarly titled "Broken City," which (as far as we know) has had an easier ride with casting. The film will star Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kyle Chandler, Barry Pepper and Jeffrey Wright for the "Chinatown"-esque tale of a private investigator hired for simple infidelity case who goes onto uncovers shady real estate deals and city corruption.

I wonder if Gerry will stay on board, given everyone who has already backed out.

I've never seen "The Book Of Eli," "From Hell," or "Menace II Society," nor do I want to.

Not sure that Amber Heard is a loss but Gary Oldman is. I watched him in "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" recently and his stillness and intensity is disconcerting.
