127 Hours star James Franco has pulled out of starring and directing upcoming movie Garden of Last Days just two weeks before shooting was set to start, according to a report.

Franco, who can currently be seen in new comedy This is The End, was expected to start work on the project on July 10th, but he is believed to have stepped away from the film after a disagreement with financiers, according to Deadline.

Garden of Last Days was loosely based on the 2008 novel of the same name by Andre Dubus III.

Franco signed up for the movie last April.
