Hollywood star George Clooney has walked away from the opportunity to produce Tom Ford's new movie 'Nocturnal Animals'
George Clooney has scrapped plans to produce Tom Ford's new movie 'Nocturnal Animals'.
The 54-year-old Hollywood star had agreed to a role with the film, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams, but reportedly decided to opt out of the project following a disagreement with the fashion designer and director, who is currently in Cannes, Frances meeting international distributors to secure funding for the dark thriller.
A source told the New York Post newspaper: "Ford is in Cannes because George Clooney was to produce the movie through his Smokehouse Pictures, with Grant Heslov.
"But they had a huge falling out over creative issues a few weeks ago, and Clooney is no longer involved."
However, Clooney has denied there's been any disagreement between himself and Ford, 53.
He said: "No falling out at all. It was just scheduling. Grant and I love the project and think Tom is fantastic. We just couldn't do it when he needed to go."
Meanwhile, a source in Cannes - where the annual film festival is currently being staged - said: "Tom has been taking a lot of meetings to present the movie, and it is garnering a lot of excitement. The roles for Gyllenhaal and Adams are very strong."
'Nocturnal Animals' is an adaptation of Austin Wright's 1993 novel 'Tony and Susan'.
