Since Armie Hammer is busy cornering the market of celebrity cannibals, producers have decided to find replacements for his projects.
Josh Duhamel is now in negotiations for the role in the Lionsgate production after producers and leading lady Jennifer Lopez went on the hunt for their new star, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Hammer, of course, is dealing with the leak of lurid social media messages alleged to be from the oil heir/actor.
In the texts, the writer graphically spoke about BDSM, cannibalism and excessive drug use.
It was followed by a leak of private Instagram where Hammer was seen bragging about passing a drug-test despite having DMT in his system, and also flashing an image of a lingerie-clad woman on all fours.
Armie addressed the allegations on January 14th, sharing: ‘I’m not responding to these bullshit 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.
‘Lionsgate is supporting me in this, and I’m grateful to them for that.’ Good for you. lol. Ya gross.
