Caan departs film set

JamesCaan.jpgIt seems that James Caan has walked off of the new film Nailed, and the reasons given were nothing more than creative differences.

There's probably something more to it though when you hear that David O. Russell is directing, the man who is now more famous for going berserk on the set of I Heart Huckabees.

The story from the New York Post through Jo Blo tells us that James Caan was filming on set for Nailed and walked off the set to head home where he phoned in his resignation.

Caan is a superb actor and a great presence on screen, but in this case it doesn't look like it was meant to be, his publicist said:

"James Caan did amicably part ways with this production due to creative differences."

Wow, the director strikes again perhaps? Isn't it supposed to be the acting talent that carries the flaky reputation?

Well perhaps it is as the New York Post blog goes onto mention that there's a rumour that Jake Gyllenhaal was acting up on stage, however it does read like the kind of rumour you hear all the time in gossip papers and magazines.
There's no denying though that there are problems with James Caan and David O. Russell, with going home to resign there's not a doubt in anyone's mind that they've had a serious falling out. I guess we'll have to wait a little longer to see him in something more dramatic than some of his films of late.
