I was curious as to what the status was of the upcoming biopic on Dennis Wilson ("The Drummer") and stumbled across your article. I haven't read anywhere else about Aaron Eckhart leaving the project. However, you say he did. Just wondering if you had that confirmed. Any response would be much appreciated.
A Dennis Wilson Fan
I'm always happy to hear from Beach Boy Fans. Thank you for your question. Here is the article I found about Aaron Eckhart leaving the film, The Drummer. Below is the link and also the link to the post I did about Dennis. Be sure to click on the tab, Beach Boys at the top of my blog for more Beach Boy stories and pictures.
The upcoming biopic of late Beach Boy Dennis Wilson, called The Drummer, has run into a major snag with the loss of leading man and executive producer, Aaron Eckhart, who was slated to portray Wilson. Jennifer Wilson, Dennis' daughter and one of the project's producers, revealed to us that Eckhart has bowed out of the role as the Beach Boys' co-founder. Actress Vera Farmiga has signed on to play Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie, Dennis' late-'70s love interest. Farmiga is best known for her Oscar nominated performance opposite George Clooney in 2009's Up In the Air.
