Daniel Craig has backed out of negotiations to star in Fernando Meirelles' philosophical thriller "Blindness."

Back in March, reports were circulating around that Daniel Craig is seriously engaged in talks to topline philosophical thriller "Blindness" alongside Julianne Moore. However, it now turns out that the actor has pulled out all the plugs attached to the project, set to be helmed by Brazilian filmmaker Fernando Meirelles.

Bringing up the sad news is The Hollywood Reporter, which briefly confirmed that Craig has dropped negotiations on him to appear in the flick. Reason behind his departure is unclear, but it is speculated that his hectic filming schedule is the one responsible for the decision.

Based on Portuguese Nobel Prize winner Jose Saramago's 1995 novel of the same title, "Blindness" centers on an epidemic of blindness that spreads across an unnamed contemporary city, pushing the residents to the brink of breakdown. Craig was previously touted for the role of a doctor whose wife is one of only a few individuals who have escaped the plague.
