One tabloid darling will replace another in the film about poet Dylan Thomas, The Best Times of Our Lives. Lindsay Lohan had been chosen to play the part of Thomas' wife Caitlin MacNamara, yet she dropped out when the film's financiers couldn't come to a deal with her.
Second choice is Sienna Miller who will now be working opposite Keira Knightley, Cillian Murphy and Matthew Rhys. Variety says:
Scripted by Knightley's playwright mother Sharman Macdonald, pic is based on a rivalry between two women over the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas (Rhys). Miller will play his wife, Caitlin MacNamara, and Knightley plays his childhood friend Vera Phillips.
This is the second time in recent history when Lohan has been replaced in a film, having walked away from Tennessee Williams' The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond, in which Bryce Dallas Howard took her place.
