Just days before principal photography was set to begin, Daniel Craig has surprisingly dropped out of the courtroom drama The Whole Truth.

The actor signed on to star at the end of January, where he was set to play a district attorney, although no other plot details were revealed. Shooting was scheduled to begin on April 14 in Boston, with Renée Zellweger and Gabriel Basso already confirmed to co-star, but now shooting has been pushed back for three weeks to find a replacement for Daniel Craig.

No reason was given as to why he dropped out at the last minute, but The Hollywood Reporter reveals that he left the project on Sunday. The delay has also put the involvement of other actors in limbo, such as Danny Huston, who was in negotiations to join the cast when Daniel Craig dropped out.
