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.

PS: IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BACK OR WHITE. IT'S WHO HAS THE MONEY TO PAY THE HIGH PRICED LAWYERS.

He'll probably get community service and a reality show.

No matter who it is, it's sad. Meth is a seriously dangerous drug. I'm glad that one more dealer is off the street. Hopefully he find the help that he needs. Which in all reality means move away and start over!

most of you need to shut up because you have no clue what you are talking about. realize that meth is a very highly addictive drug. it's just as addictive as heroine is. if you've ever taken a drug class (instead of watching PSA about drugs that are clearly dramatic and over reacting), you'd know that. he should be locked up. i dont' know about his whole life (child molesters and rapists don't even get that now), but he should be locked up. if he gets off for this then congress needs to do something about the justice system. i feel sorry for his family. i've lost friends to this drug. it's poison. i think if people knew how it's made (watch the movie SPUN), they might want to think twice before they blow it up their nose.
