Léa Seydoux explains why she left David Cronenberg’s film

Léa Seydoux, currently starring in Dune 2explained why he finally pulled out of David Cronenberg’s next film.

We often see cast changes, one of the best known is that of Eric Stoltz, replaced by Michael J. Fox because he did not fit enough with the desired atmosphere for Return to the future. More recently, Marvel is expected to change plans for Kang after the Jonathan Majors trials. More often than not, the decision comes from studios and directors who are unconvinced or have disagreements with their actors. But from time to time, actors and actresses leave the train alone on the road.

This is particularly the case with Léa Seydoux recently. Although she not long ago pointed out the differences between Hollywood and French cinema, Lea Seydoux spoke about his withdrawal from David Cronenberg’s next film: the shrouds, she who had starred in his previous film Crimes of the future.
