LATEST: KILL BILL star Uma Thurman has become the favourite to replace Sandra Bullock in PRIME, after Bullock pulled out of the movie just two weeks before filming.

MISS CONGENIALITY star Bullock was the original choice to play the lead in writer-director Ben Younger's film, but the actress withdrew, citing her disapproval of the script as her reason.

Although no official offers have been made to Thurman, she is expected to be first in line if Bullock remains unhappy with last-minute changes to the script.

The movie, which also stars Meryl Streep, is due to start shooting on 7 September (04).
