Director Susanna Lo tells us that Birch's father/manager, Jack Birch, has caused a ruckus in the production and Thora will pay the price by getting ousted from the much-coveted role of Sandra Good in the film Manson Girls (Lindsay Lohan was once slated to star in the movie, but I think we all know what happened with that). Heather Matarazzo is still on board to play Sadie Atkins."Thora is a great actress," says Lo, "but there have been several problems with her father/manager that make it too difficult to work things out in an ensemble cast situation where everything needs to be balanced and fair to the whole cast. You can quote me on that. On Wednesday, January 5, you will see a fresh Breakdown go out recasting the role of Sandra Good, which Thora was originally set to play."Thanks, Dad!Dad Jack is an ex porn star (he and Birch’s mother, Carol Connors, were both in Deep Throat) and he's a fucking creep, according to accounts of his assholism on the set of Thora's 2008 thriller Winter of Frozen Dreams. He reportedly threatened “kill the assistant directors” and “pull her from the movie with three days of shooting left”. THEN he got her fired on Dec 14th, 2010 from the stage production of Dracula in New York City. She was playing Lucy Westerner. And now? Now she's fired from Manson Girls, which sounded like a perfect vehicle for Birch's downbeat sensuality and intense ability. But Daddy had to screw it up by being a jerkwad.Lo plans to have Birch's replacement by January 24th. Not only is the film supposed to start shooting in February 2011, but Lo will be giving a press conference through Associated Press at the Sundance Film Festival at the Gibson Guitar Lodge on January 24th, where she and the rest of the cast will announce Birch's replacement. The news will be streaming live on the AP Live website, the Warner Brothers Music site and the Gibson Guitar site.
