Armie Hammer Leaves TV Show About Making The Godfather

The Offer is an upcoming ten-episode series that takes a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the iconic film The Godfather. Now, the Paramount+ series has lost its star. Armie Hammer, who had previously signed on to play Al Ruddy, the producer of the film, has exited the project.

The news comes from as Hammer is alleged to have sent graphic messages to women online, some of which alluded to fantasies about abuse and cannibalism. None of the messages are verified to have been sent by Hammer and, in a statement via , he said, “I’m not responding to these bulls*** claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic. Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.”

The movie filming in the Dominican Republic is Shotgun Wedding, which he was set to star in alongside Jennifer Lopez. Josh Duhamel (Transformers) is to be replacing him in the role.

A replacement has not been found for The Offer. The series was first announced in late 2020 as the rebranding of CBS All Access into Paramount+ was revealed. Among the other shows in the works for the streaming service is a reboot of the VH1 documentary series Behind the Music. No other information about The Offer, including a potential cast or release date, has been announced.
