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.

Ohhhh, his ass is gonna hurt every morning worse than eating a can jalapenos.

Selling meth is worse than using meth.

I just bet this thing never goes to trial. His father's mega millions will buy him the best legal defense in the country. They will work out a plea deal with the Feds for a lesser sentence.

He will be out in 18 months, do the usual PR interviews about his ordeal behind bars, his father's money will buy a producer's deal. He will be working in the film industry once again.

The kids of celebrities know they will always be treated differently. They have a sense of entitlement. Were he poor and African American, he would spend the rest of his life behind bars .

I bet when Cameron was a child, he got the BEST CHRISTMAS, BIRTHDAY toys ever.
When you calculate his age and Michael Douglas filmography you can see that when
he was a young boy, Michael was in the prime of his life and career. He was probably
too busy in the movie business and fooling around with other women to pay enough
attention to his only son (at the time). That is NOT an excuse for Cameron but I think
NEGLECT and LACK OF ORIENTATION paid a big role on his drug addiction. I think
the same goes for Farrah Fawcett's son Redmond. These two young men got everything
handed to them and became irresponsible, reckless, men with no ambition, drive, goals,
etc. And here we are today.

No matter how much money and connections Michael Douglas has, Cameron's life will
be affected. Hopefully Michael Douglas won't completely disinherit him and will instead
set up Cameron's trust fund with "conditions." Hope his mother is okay. She also adopted
twins and created a new family.

i dont care if these people have tons of money. they also have problems just like everyone else. just because u have money doesn't mean your gonna live a very happy life.
this man is an addict and belongs in rehab! not Prison !

LL belongs in jail for chasing down that woman in that car. LL hasn't had her reality check yet. SHE HAD HER CHANCES AND RUINED THEM this is what fame and money do to these people and its sad . ANOTHER PERSON WHO DEFINITELY BELONGS IN JAIL IS RYAN O'NEIL! THAT MAN MESSED HIS KIDS UP HORRIBLY. I BELIEVE EVERYTHING GRIFFIN SAID ABOUT HIM. NOW REDMOND IS IN JAIL AND I HAVE A FEELING IT HAS ALOT TO DO WITH RYAN! . I FELT SO SORRY FOR GRIFFIN BECAUSE THEY WOULDN'T LET HIM IN THE FUNERAL!!! THEN WE HAVE TATUM BUYING CRACK/COCAINE . ALL 3 KIDS ARE MESSED UP BECAUSE OF RYAN AND I SAY PUT THAt bastard in the slammer where he belongs!

My recommendation    

i can't believe people are equating meth to coke or alcohol! are you insane? from dose nation: In case you were keeping score at home and hadn't already figured this out in terms of how your own brain or life is or isn't falling apart, meth will kick the ass of cocaine every time:
A new research study, soon to be published in the Nov. 1, 2008 issue of the journal NeuroImage, suggests that methamphetamine enters the brain just as quickly as cocaine but spreads further and stays in the brain longer.
The study, which was conducted by the Brookhaven National Laboratory, measured brain uptake, distribution, and clearance of methamphetamine in 19 healthy, non-drug-abusing men by injecting them with radioactively tagged forms of methamphetamine and cocaine in doses too small to have any psychoactive effects.

The researchers found that both drugs enter the brain quickly, but that methamphetamine clears the brain later and affects more brain regions than cocaine.

So there!

It's true big money can get you off the hook for almost anything. But only when it's done below the radar screen (Like his two priors). Now that everyone's looking all the money in the world won't save him. Feds will give him the full court press, just like they did on Leona Helmsley, one of the richest people in the world. Her crime was relatively minor and she served several years in Federal prison. Ditto Martha Stewart, Only hope Cameron has is to dump all his lawyers and throw himself on the mercy of the court. In which case he may get off with just 5-10 years.

Drugs don't discriminate, anyone can get addicted but christ! This guy has had everything handed to him and he still blew it! He's had more chances and opportunities than the rest of us will ever get.

WHY DOES THIS HAVE TO BE A RACE THING?? IF HE DID THE CRIME, HE SHOULD DO THE TIME. BLACK OR WHITE SHOULD HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. IF HE HAS THE MONEY FOR THE BEST LAWYERS, HE WILL PROBABLY GET AWAY WITH A LIGHT SENTENCE. BUT THAT IS HOW THIS COUNTRY OPERATES. MONEY TALKS. THE HAVES, GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING, AND THE HAVE NOTS GET THE SHAFT. BUT AS LONG AS WE ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN, IT WILL CONTINUE. THERE ARE 2 SETS OF RULES , DEPENDING ON YOUR WEALTH.
