Douglas Dumps Score to Team With Zeta-Jones

It might not be a good business call, but it's kinda romantic. Michael Douglas has dropped out of Mandalay Pictures' The Score so he could look for a film project with main squeeze Catherine Zeta-Jones.

The Score would have brought Douglas back to his old TV police drama Streets of San Francisco turf on the other side of the law, as a cat burglar who tries to outdo his legendary father by pulling off a heist in the City by the Bay. Guess there was no room for Zeta-Jones in the Entrapment-like flick.

Sources for The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Bowfinger helmer Frank Oz is still attached to direct the flick, which is now minus one cat burglar.

Douglas is still on for Curtis Hanson's Wonder Boys and for a cameo in USA Films' One Night at McCools, starring Liv Tyler, John Goodman, Paul Reiser, and Matt Dillon.

The Mask of Zorro actress, meanwhile, has committed to the sci-fi thriller The Tenth Victim for director Lee Tamahori and just wrapped shooting on High Fidelity, the new romantic comedy based on the novel by Nick Hornby and directed by Stephen Frears.
