“Due to the criteria for financing not being met by producers, Benaroya Pictures has formally decided to discontinue financing the motion pictured titled Idol’s Eye,” a statement from the production company read. “The company cannot continue to put its investment at risk and has been forced to stop cash flowing the production.

“This is something all of us wanted to avoid, but due to the producers missing a number of financing criteria deadlines that were mutually established by all parties, we were left with no other options.”

The movie was originally scheduled to begin shooting last month in Toronto in Canada and in Chicago but the financing deadlines were not met.
