Michael Douglas' Kid Dropped from Movie

8/8/2009 2:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cameron DouglasWe can't for the life of us figure out why the producers of the film "The Beautiful Outsiders" would drop Cameron Douglas from the movie as both an actor and associate producer.

Unless of course it's the whole "could face life in prison on charges of selling meth" thing.

Whatever the reason, Andrew Jones, the director and producer of the film, released a statement today saying Douglas is done with the project, saying, "The serious nature of the allegations means it is highly unlikely that Cameron would be able to travel, so it would be impossible for him to be in the UK for filming. And with charges of this nature hanging over for him, it would be very difficult for us to get insurance for him."

Ahhhhhhhh, so it is the whole "could face life in prison on charges of selling meth" thing.

Douglas faces a mandatory minimum of 10 years in prison and a maximum period of life.

In Hollyweird ......a drug addict star, or ,child of a star is a badge of honor! Theuygrow up watching the parent drugged up and the world just can not figure out how this happens.There are countless cases from the John Phillips never ending saga to this been there read it story of a Douglas dope head. They get community service instead of real time, and the fans think it is cool and try to get away with the same thing,problem there is they do infact end up in jail ,not community service like the rich & famous freaks.

bitch please    

10 years MINIMUM for selling meth????

Somebody please tell me..... WHY?

The "war on drugs" makes no sense and doesn't work. It's cruel and unusual punishment for druggies. Leave them alone!

Biased information    

If a parent gave pharmaceutical grade cocaine or meth to a kid we'd obviously call it criminal.

So why is it that when the parent gives "legal" drugs that are nearly identical to cocaine and meth and that have similar effects we call it "parenting"?

Think about it before you respond with something stupid.

Cameron Douglas will get off with a 'slap on the wrist'. His father, Michael Douglas is rich n has all the powerful connections, the TV ews media don't even cover this story- ONLY the print media.
Special kid.
No need to worry! His step-mother, CZJ has made it a point to keep her dope addict step-son AWAY from her own children.
While America continues to financially implode, Cameron Douglas only has to worry about when his next drug score will be.
No worries for Michael Douglas's son...he will get special treatment!

Mandatory 10 years that's for the unchosen people. Mark my word, he plea bargain and do 1 (ONE) year. He'll snitch on his suppliers....AND.....He's going to have an international dream team of defense attorneys. The judge will even surprise him/herself. WRITE IT IN STONE....ONE YEAR.
