There’s been chatter that Tim Roth is no longer involved with The Childhood of A Leader. If you remember, we posted that Protagonist included Tim Roth in the cast back in August 2014.   But below is a screenshot of Protagonist’s current cast list.

I think it’s odd that there’s been no official mention that he’s no longer involved.  Screen Daily has included TCoaL in its Screenbase Hot Projects and I noted the absence of Tim Roth’s name:

“Brady Corbet’s The Childhood Of A Leader

This directorial feature debut is currently shooting in Hungary. Berenice Bejo, Robert Pattinson, Stacy Martin, Liam Cunningham, Yolande Moreau and Sophie Curtis star. The film charts the birth of a terrifying ego during the rise of fascism in the early 20th century.

Producers are Chris Coen, Antoine de Clermont-Tonnerre, Helena Danielsson and Istvan Major. Ron Curtis, Brian Young, Aaron L. Gilbert, Michael Sherman, Matthew Perniciaro and Patrick Murray executive produce, with Genevieve Lemal co-producing.”

I’m still holding out hope that he’s in the film because he’s on my personal list of underrated and loved actors.  And before someone reminds me, I’m aware that Roth’s currently filming Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, but it’s not the first time an actor has filmed 2 movies concurrently.  DeNiro is reportedly working on 2 films at the moment and as Vertigo and Michelle reminded me, Giamatti was working on Cosmopolis and Rock of Ages.  I guess we should know soon enough though.

Updated 2 March 2015:

Guess there’s no room for any doubt now that Tim Roth’s name has been removed from the cast list and indeed replaced by Liam Cunningham on IMDbPro:
