Reese Witherspoon, recently wed, leaves Pixar’s “Brave”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: More pink slips reportedly are being handed out at Pixar for those who were collaborating on the in-development project, “The Bear and the Bow.”

For starters, original director Brenda Chapman was axed when the animation studio declared itself unhappy with the story’s direction. Mark Andrews, who helmed Pixar’s “One Man Band” short, took over directing, and the new project was retitled “Brave.” (Both Andrews and Chapman will be credited as the movie’s directors, according to reports.)

Chapman isn’t alone. Reese Witherspoon, who was voicing the film’s lead character, has left the project due to “scheduling issues,” and was be replaced by Kelly Macdonald.

It’s almost like starting over from Square One. Which might be fine, if Pixar ends up releasing a masterpiece. Entertainment Weekly released some new production art for the film, which will be about a Scottish princess who’s rebelling against her family because she’d like to be an archer.

“Brave” now has a June 22, 2012 release date. We’ll see if Andrews and his team can hit that mark.
