Ezra Miller was not cut from TIFF movie

Ezra Miller has survived the chopping block once again.

Director Mary Harron said the actor’s role in “Dalíland,” which will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, was not cast in recent months following recent legal troubles, including two arrests in Hawaii and a protective order in North Dakota been reduced and a burglary investigation and indictment in her home state of Vermont in recent weeks.

Harron confirmed the status of Miller’s supporting role as the young Salvador Dalí in an interview with Vanity Fair published Wednesday.

“The film was completely finished and packaged. It might have been different, especially if we were shooting, if there had been some misbehavior,” said Harron. “But that all happened after the film was not just shot, it was edited, mixed and done. I also felt that all of these things were shot in good faith. Nothing bad happened during our shooting and the film is the film.”

Earlier this month, Warner Bros. Discovery announced that its Miller-directed film The Flash is still slated for a June 2023 release.

“We’ve seen ‘The Flash’, ‘Black Adam’ and ‘Shazam 2’. We think they’re great and we believe we can make them even better,” said David Zaslav, Warner Bros. Discovery’s chief executive, during the announcement of second-quarter results.

Harron also praised Miller’s acting in Dalíland, which centers on Ben Kingsley’s portrayal of the elderly Salvador Dalí.

“They delivered a fully realized performance. They were very professional and nice to everyone. There was no trouble or signs of trouble on set,” said the American Psycho director. “So it was very upsetting and terrifying to read what happened later. This stuff was very sad to read – very sad for everyone involved.”

But she didn’t exonerate Miller for her actions while also expressing concern for her well-being.

“I don’t condone what they did wrong. I think it doesn’t matter how talented someone is, if they did something wrong they have to face it. I also think this is clearly not just a young star performing. This is much more serious. This appears to be something that requires serious intervention, which hopefully has happened.”

Miller publicly expressed regret for her actions in a statement to Variety earlier this month.

“I want to apologize to anyone I’ve alarmed and upset with my past behavior,” said the Justice League actor. “I am committed to doing the work necessary to get me back to a healthy, safe and productive phase in my life.”

Miller explained that they “went through a period of intense crisis” and began ongoing treatment for “complex mental health issues.”

Last week, a source told The Hollywood Reporter that Miller’s latest mea culpa came after the actor’s team learned that Warner Bros.’ The senior film producers, who recently took over the company’s motion picture division, were considering all options for next summer’s release of The Flash.
