Actor Armie Hammer has left the production of The Offer, the upcoming drama about the making of The Godfather.
Variety reports that Hammer, who recently starred in Netflix's remake of Rebecca, had been tipped to play Godfather producer Al Ruddy in the series, which tells the behind-the-scenes story on the making of the 1972 film.
Hammer’s replacement has yet to be announced. The actor also dropped out of the romcom film Shotgun Wedding, which stars Jennifer Lopez, earlier in January.
The news follows the leaking of several sexually graphic messages that were allegedly sent by the actor between 2016 and 2020.
Following his exit from Shotgun Wedding, Hammer issued a statement, saying, "I’m not responding to these bulls*** claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic."
Hammer will next star in a new version of Murder on the Orient Express and has also signed up for a sequel to Call Me By Your Name.
