Daniel Craig has pulled of thriller The Whole Truth, days before he was due to begin shooting in Boston with co-star Renee Zellweger.
Daniel Craig, 46, was set to play a district attorney and had been spotted preparing for the role at Boston’s Suffolk County Superior Court last month.
Producers have halted production on the film, according to the Boston Globe.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the start date has been moved back by three weeks.
Directed by Frozen River‘s Courtney Hunt, the film was scheduled to being filming on April 14. It is thought Daniel Craig left the project on Sunday.
The film would have seen Daniel Craig appear alongside Renee Zellweger and 19-year-old Gabriel Basso.
The independent project was announced during the Berlin Film Festival in February.
Daniel Craig will soon reprise his role as 007 in the 24th James Bond film, due out next year.
The actor and his wife Rachel Weisz – who recently co-starred on stage in a Broadway revival of Harold Pinter’s play Betrayal – were seen together on Monday at a charity gala in New York.
The event was organized by the Opportunity Network, a charity supported by Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, which helps high-achieving, low-income students gain entry to top colleges.
