Gosling “quits” Lovely Bones

By October 23, 2007 No Comments

According to a story in Variety (picked up by Tom Cardy at Stuff), Ryan Gosling has quit Peter Jackson’s The Lovely Bones one day before principal photography was due to begin in Pennsylvania citing “creative differences”.

PJ has previous when it comes to last-minute, bold, cast changes: Viggo Mortensen was flown in to replace Stuart Townsend as Aragorn after only a week of shooting The Lord of the Rings. In that instance it was a case of replacing a plank with an actor which is understandable. In this case, Gosling is to be replaced by Mark Wahlberg (no favourite of Funerals & Snakes) which seems like the other way around.
