Carnahan talks Witherspoon and Bunny Lake

JoeCarnahan.jpgJoe Carnahan has spoken out on his blog about the recent news that Reese Witherspoon dropped out of his film Bunny Lake is Missing at a very late stage, and once again he's angry at the press and wants to put a few things straight.

Turns out that there wasn't such a big issue and that this suits him just fine. Scheduling was getting tight towards White Jazz and he's hinting that the Bunny Lake is Missing schedule was getting dragged out with Witherspoon on board so now he can get on with it. Either that or he's hinting that the film is going to be delayed until after White Jazz, I'm not entirely sure.

Here's what he says on his blog:

How about a situation where the press tries to stir it up. These things happen. Movies go away every day. Reese is dealing with a lot of stuff in her life. So am I. We were running up against it as far as time for prep and shooting and scripting, etc. I had already commited to 'White Jazz' and the longer we stretched 'Bunny' the more in jeopardy the WJ schedule became. And there was just no way I could let that happen. I need a nice extended prep period for that flick.

And now I've got it.

That's it guys. I wish there were some truly tasty bits of gossip but there just aren't. Sorry.

Okay, not entirely sure what he means by this, but I think it's the latter guess, in other words waiting for Witherspoon was dragging out the schedule and it was coming too close to White Jazz for comfort. It does sound like Bunny Lake is still going ahead though.
