James Franco has pulled out of upcoming drama While We'Re Young due to scheduling conflicts with OZ: The Great And Powerful.
The 127 Hours star was due to star as a free-spirited young man who inspires an uptight documentarian, to be played by Ben Stiller, to loosen up.
Cate Blanchett, who was cast as Stiller's onscreen wife, has also dropped out of Noah Baumbach's project, which was due to begin filming in New York in June (11), according to JustJared.com.
Franco is set to play the title character in Oz: The Great and Powerful, director Sam Raimi's prequel to the classic 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.
