Armie Hammer is having a bad day today.
His role as producer Al Ruddy has been recast with Miles Teller in the making of “The Godfather” mini series.
And the gang who made “Call Me By Your Name” is making another movie, without him.
“The Godfather” miniseries is called “The Offer” (as in making an offer you can’t refuse). It’s a mini series from Paramount Plus, formerly CBS All Access.
Ruddy would have been 40 when “The Godfather” went into production, Teller is 34. But they had to recast when Armie went batshit crazy and blew up his career.
At the same time, Hammer is missing out on a new movie directed by Luca Guadagnino. The director of Armie’s most important film, “Call Me By Your Name,” was going to make a sequel. But that project is pretty much kaput now that Hammer, again, has blown up his career. There are rape allegations, and all kinds of other bad stuff. Hammer has done nothing to fight the bad press, but instead has encouraged it.
So Guadagnino is making another movie called “Bones & All,” starring two “Call Me” castmates, Timothee Chalamet and Michael Stuhlbarg. This has to be a blow to Hammer, to see his whole former crew making a movie without him. It’s like they went out of their way to do it.
