David Cronenberg Off ANIMAL RESCUE
It was reported back in August that David Cronenberg had been attached to direct Animal Rescue, a Fox backed project from Chernin Entertainment based on a script by Mystic River writer Dennis Lehane. That attachment has proven to be short lived.

Twitch has learned that Cronenberg is now off the project and that Fox are targeting George Clooney and Alexander Payne as possible replacements.

The reasons for Cronenberg's departure are not exactly clear. As of his three known directing attachments outside of this only The Matarese Circle has a proposed start date - 2013 - while Eastern Promises 2 and As She Climbed Across The Table both remain too early in the process to call. Unless there has been a sudden development with one of those projects or something else has come up - perhaps the much talked about sequel to The Fly, which is also at Fox - this would not appear to be a scheduling issue.

Give us "Table" and "The Fly" sequel. You can keep the rest.

Eastern Promise seems like much more ripe for an unforced sequel than The Fly to me.
