The project The Tourist, which the trades recently announced with such fanfare because it stars Angelina Jolie and now Johnny Depp, is already switching directors. The articles fingered Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck as director but he was not locked in and did not yet have a deal. Others say he’s off the pic because the producers found him “difficult and demanding”. To which Florian’s UTA defenders say: “Of course he’s demanding. He’s an auteur.” Now another UTA client, Alfonso Cuaron, is in talks to direct. Meanwhile, Depp is still another UTA client.
