Heche replaces Leigh in Spread

From Walt Disney Pictures and visionary director Tim Burton comes an epic IMAX 3D fantasy adventure “Alice in Wonderland,” a magical and imaginative twist on some of the most beloved stories of all time. Now, 19, Alice returns to the whimsical world she first encountered as a young girl and embarks on a fantastical journey to find her true destiny and end the Red Queen’s reign of terror. Capturing the wonder of Lewis Carroll’s beloved “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” (1865) and “Through the Looking-Glass” (1871) with stunning, avant-garde visuals and the most charismatic characters in literary history, “Alice in Wonderland” comes to the big screen in Disney Digital 3D and IMAX 3D.

Anne Heche has replaced Jennifer Jason Leigh in new  rom-com ‘Spread’. The film will be helmed by ‘Hallam Foe’ Director David MacKenzie.


No clear reason has been giving for Leigh’s departure, but the Hollywood Reporter suggests Leigh withdrew from the project last week as she is expecting a baby with director husband Noah Baumbach.


The movie stars Ashton Kutcher as a serial womaniser, with Heche now playing one of his old spurned flames. According to IMDB, Laura Linney is also linked to the project though no information is available as to her part.


It is scheduled to begin shooting in LA immediately.
