That's what the Web site Comingsoon.net reports. British actor Ben Whishaw told the entertainment news site that Steven Daldry had signed on to direct the movie, which is based on Berkeley writer Michael Chabon's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. But Daldry has apparently walked away from the project. "It's been sort of put to one side for a little while," Whishaw said. "It all fell apart, which is such a shame."
