Tom Ford announced that he was working on his second film entitled “Nocturnal Animals”. George Clooney was supposed to produce the movie with his partner in film crime, Grant Heslov with their Smokehouse Pictures company. Now we have word from Page Six that Clooney has dropped out of producing the film. With this meant Ford had to meet with international distributors at the Cannes Film Festival to secure funding.
Sources told Page Six that, “Ford is in Cannes because George Clooney was to produce the movie […] But they had a huge falling out over creative issues a few weeks ago, and Clooney is no longer involved.”
Clooney spoke with Page Six to set the record straight that there was no bad blood between the two. “No falling out at all,” Clooney said. “Grant and I love the project and think Tom is fantastic. We just couldn’t do it when he needed to go.”
Actor Jake Gyllenhaal and actress Amy Adams are still on board to play the lead roles for the film.
