He said he quit the film-he was not fired.
He quit the film over a lack of rehearsal time.
Shia sent Variety a copy of an email he sent to Olivia.
Firing me never took place and while I understand the attractiveness of pushing that story…it is not the truth.
He ended the email, I hope none of this negatively effects you and that your film is successful in all the ways you want it to be.
Harry Styles has been recast in Shia’s role.
