'Idol’s Eye' Has Been Cancelled



From Deadline:
Benaroya Pictures has shut down the Robert De Niro – Robert Pattinson action-thriller Idol’s Eye just as filming was set to commence in Toronto. “Due to the criteria for financing not being met by producers, Benaroya Pictures has formally decided to discontinue financing the motion picture titled IDOL’S EYE,” the production company said in a statement today. “The company cannot continue to put its investment at risk and has been forced to stop cash flowing the production. This is something all of us wanted to avoid, but due to the producers missing a number of financing criteria deadlines that were mutually established by all parties, we were left with no other options. Benaroya Pictures plans to retain the rights of the film and move forward with production on the picture after we generate a revised script and assemble a new filmmaking team.”

Assemble a new filmaking team..does that mean new actors or new producers and director? I would have loved to see Rob and De Niro acting together.

Such a shame. I too, was looking forward to seeing these two work together and hear what they said about each other.

They have had problems with this film for a long time. I ope they can get it together and finally make this movie. I would love to see them work together...

Very disappointed to hear this news. I was really looking forward to seeing it with Robert and Robert. Seems like the film industry can be quite fragile.

Kiloz.... Really??... Has there been "situations" for a while??... D-:

My grandmother used to say: "Give all of you, from the baby steps. If you don't succeed, then you're not ready."...
Aaaaaand, all my grandm is GOLD!!..

So, maybe he's not ready...
I'm sure he'll find something else to do... Robert just cannot stay still, there, doing nothing... He loves this!!!... I'm sure there's people in line, to have him in their cast...

Don't feel sorry for the actors.I believe it's the crew that will be most affected. This is an Indie Film, so the actors weren't going to make a lot of $ anyways. Maybe they're happy to have the break. Especially Rob with his new relationship..

kiloz said...

Yeah I saw an interview he did in Australia for Rover and he said he was suppose to have filmed IE, but it was pushed back a year for financial reasons

Margarita Lopez said...

Ohhhhhh... Le money... Ok...
And someone said here (don't remm who or where, sorry), that it appeared again in some list... :D... Maybe they found a pocket...?... ^.^...
Well, still gotta wait for the official, right?... :)...

kiloz said...

I hope so I would love to not only see this movie, but the two of them work together... (and he still has the mustache that may mean something too)

Margarita Lopez said...

XD... The moustache... Maybe... Hence why I wanted to know if it was a direction change, or casting, or something...
But definitely want to see square-Robert, on a movie that has "idol" on its very name... :P
No spoiling, but appealing... ^.^
