KATE WINSLET has pulled out of a forthcoming film whose plot is strikingly similar to the story of her own marriage. The actress was all set to appear in THE HEART SHAPED BULLET, an adaptation of a novel by KATHRYN FLETT, which tells the story of the collapse of the author's marriage after just 17 months.
Flett, the former editor of ARENA magazine, attributed the collapse of her marriage to the fact that she was the "main breadwinner" in the relationship. The film's co-producer LIZ HOLFORD says, "Kate is an A-list actress who can pick and choose her roles. To say any more than that would put me in a difficult position. " (NFA/WNWPNE)
