Bunny Lake is truly missing someone important this time. Variety has brought in shocking reports that Reese Witherspoon, who is supposed to topline "Bunny Lake Is Missing", has taken abrupt decision to give up her role despite the film's production schedule which is slated to begin next month.
Beyond the late notice, the departure is really surprising since the actress and her Type A Films partner Jennifer Simpson were assigned to produce alongside Mark Gordon. With this happening, there is a possibility that filming start date can be pushed back for Spyglass as the financing company sure needs time to find another actress to fill in the vacant seat.
A Columbia Pictures production, "Bunny Lake" is a remake of the 1962 Otto Preminger-directed psychological thriller of the same title which centers on a woman named Ann Lake who reports that her daughter Bunny is missing only to be confronted by charges that she never existed. "Smokin' Aces" director Joe Carnahan has been tapped to direct from script written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Doug Wright.
