Cher Pulls Out Of Clint Water Crisis Film

Cher has been forced to pull out of doing the Lifetime network movie Flint about the water crisis in the Michigan city.

The singer has been talking quite a bit about the upcoming film and how proud she was to be involved in the part of one of the people affected by the situation. In a message, she sites a family issue with stopping her participation.

This has been a project so near and dear to my heart and I was truly looking forward to helping tell this story. Unfortunately, I will be unable to leave Los Angeles during the scheduled filming as I am dealing with a serious family issue that prevents me from going on location for the April filming. I’m so glad that Craig and Neil [the producers] plan to move ahead and I know that this Lifetime movie will be done beautifully.

Cher is also no longer an executive producer on the project.

The singer first acted back in 1967 in the movie Good Times with her husband Sonny Bono and an episode of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. In 1982, she returned to acting in the film Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean with Karen Black and Sandy Dennis and, the next year, in her Academy Award nominated role in Silkwood opposite Meryl Streep. In 1987, she won the Oscar for Best Actress for Moonstruck. Other films during the time included Mask, Suspect and Mermaids.

Most recently, she starred in Burlesque with Christina Aguilera. Her only dramatic television credit was in the 1996 HBO film If These Walls Could Talk.

Along with her Oscar, Cher has three Golden Globes for TV Actress Comedy or Musical (The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour, 1974), Supporting Actress (Silkwood, 1983) and Actress in a Comedy or Musical (Moonstruck, 1988).
