Wahlberg Signs Up As Gosling’s Last Minute Replacement

MARK WAHLBERG has replaced RYAN GOSLING in director PETER JACKSON’s new film – one day before shooting began.

Gosling pulled out of The Lovely Bones on Friday (19Oct07), despite the fact he had gained 20 pounds (nine kilograms) and grown a beard for his role. The actor quit over creative differences, according to industry paper Daily Variety.

Wahlberg signed up to play the part, a grieving father of a murdered girl, on Sunday (21Oct07).

The Lovely Bones, the movie adaptation of Alice Sebold’s bestseller, also stars Rachel Weisz. Filming began in Pennsylvania on Monday (22Oct07).
