It appears that the joy is short-lived.
In contrast to a delightful report from Variety few days ago stating that Ang Lee is on board to helm "A Little Game Without Consequence", an assistant to the Oscar-winning filmmaker has said otherwise to Taiwan media. Claiming the report is not true, the person strongly pointed out that Lee hasn't even been offered the position.
Following this statement, the future of the project looks gloom enough though James Schamus is said to work on the rewrite of the script. The rom-com flick previously suffered big loss when Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz shockingly decided to take a leave along with appointed helmer Gabriele Muccino.
A production of Focus Features, "Consequence" is actually based on a French play of the same title which concerns a seemingly perfect couple who realize that their friends never liked them as couple to begin with after they pretend to break up. Script originally was penned by Allan Loeb with Alain Chabat, Stephanie Danon, and Domenico Procacci producing.
