Sweet Baby Jesus Director Doesn't Get Paid, Quits

sharonstone_120.jpgAnd you thought you were underpaid. Director Peter Hewitt has quit the indie production of Sweet Baby Jesus because he allegedly hasn't gotten any checks from producer Philippe Rebboah. Said Hewitt: "I kept giving Rebboah the benefit of the doubt but he never paid me." Once a new director is "hired," the film will star Pixie Lott as a '70s version of Mary, who comes to Bethlehem, Md. to have the possible Second Coming. Sharon Stone was in talks to play Mary's mother. Of course. [Deadline]
