According to Deadline, Sofia Vergara who was announced to be part of the cast of the Lee Daniels’ directed drama The Paperboy, has just dropped out of the film.
When the start date of the movie got pushed back a week, the schedule conflicted with her day job on Modern Family, whose third season will shooting by then.
“Modern Family is her first priority, so once she was made aware of the change in schedule, she had no choice but to pull,” said an insider in her camp.
Vergara, will however be a part of The Three Stooges, a film adaptation of the television series directed by the Farrelly brothers.
The Paperboy, which stars Matthew McConaughey, Tobey Maguire and Zac Efron, is based on the Pete Dexter novel about a newspaper reporter who returns home to FLorida to investigate the possible unlawful imprisonment of a death-row inmate.
So what do you think of Vergara’s dropping out?
Personally, I don’t mind at all because her character on Modern Family is my favourite. I’m sure other films will be coming her way in the future!
