Tim McGraw Bails on Denzel Washington Film "Safe House"

Country hero Tim McGraw has withdrawn from Safe House, a C.I.A. thriller set to star Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. McGraw said he had to back out because the film's shooting schedule kept getting pushed back and eventually encroached on his tour schedule. The singer couldn't cancel his tour dates without taking a financial hit, so he instead elected to split from the film.
"We would have had to move 28 shows," McGraw told Chicago radio station U99. "The numbers for what they would pay me to do this movie, and the numbers for what I would make and what it would cost to do 28 shows were no where in the same ballpark. So, I had to back out of the movie; times are tough, man!"
You can catch McGraw via Netflix in The Blind Side and Country Strong or see him in theaters in Dirty Girl this Summer.
