'Nailed' Hammered Again, Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal Could Be Jobless

'Nailed' Hammered Again, Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal Could Be Jobless

For the third time in a row, the production of David O. Russell's comedy has been halted due to the financial problem and leaving its stars, including Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal, in uncertainty.

As if the David O. Russell's comedy movie "Nailed" wasn't already filled with drama before, it is now reported that the film's production has been shut down for the third time. Leaving two of its stars, Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal in an uncertainty and possibly causing the production to be two weeks behind schedule, the grounding down of the production is claimed to be caused by another financial problem faced by the independent movie.

Reportedly, the production has been stalled this time after numerous film crew failed to show up for work at the South Carolina set on Thursday, May 22. It is said that union leaders at the International Alliance of Theatrical + Stage Employees (IATSE) called for a boycott after learning that the below-the-line crews were not being paid. However, it seems that the boycott will be ended soon. An insider claimed that the production is expected to be resumed on Thursday, May 29.

Prior to this problem, the production has been halted twice earlier for similar issue. On May 9, the Screen Actors Guild has told its members to stop working for the project after Capitol Films didn't manage to deposit enough money for actors' payroll. Following that on May 15, the production has been stopped once again by IATSE for the payment issue.

The payroll problems were not the only bad things faced by the movie project. Earlier, the film lost one of its actors James Caan due to Caan's feud with director Russell. Words about the matter suggested that Caan and Russell have disagreement over the comical death scene of Caan's character who is supposedly choked to death by a cookie. Allegedly, Russell asked Caan to cough while choking for the scene, but Caan refused believing that it is impossible for one to cough while being choked to death. Apparently, the dispute became bigger that Caan chose to walk out from the project.

"Nailed" is an adventure comedy film about a socially awkward small-town receptionist, Sammy Joyce, who has been bizarrely injured by a nail. Uninsured, she then goes to Washington to fight for the rights of those who are experiencing the same injuries as hers. The film is expected to come out in 2009 and features also James Marsden, Catherine Keener and Tracy Morgan.
