James Franco, Cate Blanchett Exit 'While We're Young' - EXCLUSIVE

James Franco has dropped out of the upcoming film While We’re Young, JustJared.com has exclusively learned.

The 32-year-old actor was set to star in the Noah Baumbach-directed drama about an uptight documentary filmmaker and his wife who loosen up a bit after befriending a free-spirited younger couple.

Sources tell Just Jared filming was set to begin in mid-June in NYC but James had a schedule conflict with his other film, Oz: The Great and Powerful, in which he plays the title character.

Cate Blanchett has also pulled out from While We’re Young after James‘ departure, though Ben Stiller is still attached to the project.

With two of the most celebrated actors leaving, will Focus Features continue with the film? Stay tuned!
