Heather Graham has left the off-Broadway production of The Money Shot, according to Deadline. The film star has reportedly departed the Neil LaBute play to focus on her film Half Magic, which she will write, direct and star in. The MCC Theater production is scheduled to begin performances at the Lucille Lortel Theatre on September 4, where it will run through October 12. Opening night is set for September 22.
The Money Shot, directed by Terry Kinney, tells the story of Karen and Steve, two glamorous movie stars with one thing in common: desperation. The night before filming a big scene for the latest film by a hot shot European director, the two meet with their respective partners to make an important decision: how far will they let themselves go to keep from slipping further down the Hollywood food chain?
No word yet on will replace Graham. The Money Shot cast also includes Frederick Weller, Gia Crovatin and Callie Thorne.
