Michael Madsen‘s recent DUI charge is already costing him a big payday — even though he hasn’t been convicted, he’s been 86’d from a film.
Sources near manufacturing on the upcoming flick, “Chronicle of a Serial Killer,” inform TMZ … Michael’s reps have been notified Thursday he’s been canned from the forged. That’s no small loss for Madsen, who was imagined to earn $100,000 for gig.
We broke the story … Michael was simply charged with 2 misdemeanors for DUI after smashing his Land Rover in Malibu final month. Our sources inform us that’s the rationale he’s getting booted from the film.
Filming begins subsequent month in NYC, and we’re instructed manufacturing is nervous Madsen gained’t be round to shoot … as a result of he may very well be heading to jail. Michael’s a repeat DUI offender, and obligatory sentencing pointers imply he might get wherever from four to 364 days in county lockup … if convicted.
It’s kinda ironic … Michael was forged to play an NYPD officer in ‘Serial Killer,’ a psychological thriller/drama co-starring Tara Reid, DMX and Brendan Sexton III.
A substitute is already within the works. We’re instructed James Russo simply signed on to the forged … most certainly to fill Michael’s function.
