Early in December it was announced that Hammer was assigned to lead the show to play the role of Al Ruddy, who produced “The Godfather” back in 1972. The 10-episode series details Ruddy’s experience working on the iconic film. The search is now on for a new series lead replacing Hammer.

News of Armie Hammer’s leaving the show comes weeks after he also dropped out of the romcom “Shotgun Wedding,” in which Hammer was to star opposite Jennifer Lopez. This happened after a series of unverified Instagram direct messages supposedly written by Hammer leaked online. The messages described graphic sexual fantasies, including cannibalism.

Hammer previously issued a statement on the controversy, saying he would not answer to “bulls— claims,” further explaining the social media uproar around the messages as “vicious and spurious online attacks against him.”
