Connery shows ‘Money’ the door

The ever-fickle Sean Connery has dropped out of the Scott Free/Intermedia project “Where the Money Is” so he can concentrate on “Entrapment” for 20th Century Fox.

Connery had been near a deal to star with Linda Fiorentino in “Money” (Daily Variety, Oct. 14), which was originated by E. Max Frye, Topper Lilien and Carroll Cartwright. Ridley Scott, Chris Zarpas and Chuck Weinstock were set to produce.

The plot of “Entrapment” has Connery playing a cat burglar who teams with a female thief.

Connery’s agent, CAA’s David O’Connor, could not be reached for comment. But sources said the actor likely would next be doing the Ron Bass-scripted “Entrapment” under Antoine Fuqua’s direction.
