James McAvoy had been scheduled to start shooting The Details in Seattle this summer, but the film has suddenly been shut down.
"They've run into some challenges," says Amy Lillard Dee, head of WashingtonFilmWorks, which provides financial incentives to movie-makers who agree to work in the state. This year, the state legislature increased those tax benefits, a move that Dee had credited with bringing The Details to Seattle.
Dee says the producers are "still fighting to get the movie made."
UPDATE: The film's executive producer, Jennifer Roth, sent me this statement: "The production of THE DETAILS is currently on hold due to unforeseen circumstances. We look forward to resuming business in Seattle shortly as this community is the perfect home for the movie." [Seattle Weekly]
I had really been looking forward to the film, and hopefully they manage to get enough funding to eventually make it.
