This shouldn't be that suprising Empire - Joe Wright talked about how the film had been canceled on Film 2009 a few weeks ago.

Great shame becuse it looked like a promising mix of director/star/subject.

God, imagine putting all that effort, time and imagination into prepping a film only to have the carpet swept from under your feet by a studio. That is harsh. . .

I fully accept the logic that films cost money and therefore need to make money, but this is a regrettable case of strict thinking-inside-the-box. Even if The Soloist was a commercial disappointment, the execs would need to see the reasons for that, particularly the marketing. 10 million is probably the tea boy's budget on Transformers 3, so why the bloody hell do they kick up such a fuss over an amount of money that's chickenshit in the grander scheme of the film business?

Boo. And hiss, indeed.

Wright is an exceptionally talented director 40 million is nothing and this has oscar written all over it. It's a massive shame but perhaps it is time Wright made a tentpole. Then follow the Christopher Nolan formula and get the studio on your side. As for The Soloist it was never going to be a massive commercial success and putting it back in the UK was a massive mistake, but still a great movie. Wright needs to move to Warners best studio and not afraid to take risks.

BBC reporting it cancelled (But Wright and main actors still attached??????)

No doubt cancelled because of the NON AMERICAN nature of the subject.
