Exclusive: Pedro Pascal Exits Zach Cregger's 'Weapons' as 'Fantastic Four' Is Pushed to Q3

Plus, a red-hot scoop about Leonardo DiCaprio starring in Paul Thomas Anderson's next movie is finally confirmed.

Happy Wednesday, everyone! It was a crazy day news-wise, but they’ve all been like that lately, as Hollywood has eagerly returned to work following the double strike and the ill-timed holiday break that immediately followed.

After posting the newsletter last night, I met up with some buddies, but I’ve been working so hard for you guys that I passed out on my friend’s couch and woke up around 2 a.m. before driving myself home to sleep for a few more hours before this morning’s episode of For Your Consideration, in which Perri Nemiroff, Scott Mantz and I discussed the SAG Award nominations.

I was delighted to see that Annette Bening and Jodie Foster were both nominated for Nyad, and I was equally thrilled that Sterling K. Brown (American Fiction) and Penelope Cruz (Ferrari) showed up in the supporting categories. I will be rooting for American Fiction to win the award for Best Ensemble or whatever SAG calls it… but still think the guild’s rule that prevented many of the Native American cast members of the Killers of the Flower Moon from being nominated is very silly indeed.

In tonight’s edition, which is exclusive to paid subscribers, you’ll read about Pedro Pascal, Leonardo DiCaprio, Paul Thomas Anderson, James Gunn, Selena Gomez, and Seth Rogen. Enter the Sneider-Verse to keep reading…

Exclusive: Faced With Some Tough Choices, Pedro Pascal Drops Out of Zach Cregger’s Weapons 

Pedro Pascal is a bit broken right now, but he’s about to be a force on the big screen.

Pedro Pascal has been forced to drop out of Zach Cregger’s Weapons due to his busy schedule, according to multiple sources.

As previously reported, Pascal — whose arm is currently in a sling — is due to report to the Season 2 set of HBO’s The Last of Us in February.

When I first began reporting this story, I was under the impression that Marvel’s Fantastic Four would be shooting in April, leaving Pascal without a window in which to shoot Weapons.
