Robert Pattinson's diary just got a whole lot clearer as Netflix has pulled the plug on a serial killer film he was set to star in.
But the Oscar-winning filmmaker - who directed the smash hit Don't Look Up starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Jonah Hill and Meryl Streep - has since decided not to move forward with the film.
Netflix won't do it without him as, according to Variety, the comedy depended on McKay working his magic behind the camera.
And it's a downright shame too - as well as the fact we're missing out on watching Pattinson take on a character with a penchant for murder and manipulation, Average Height, Average Build sounded like a hoot.
The Twilight actor was taking on the leading role in the part serial killer-thriller, party comedy.
His character - who has quite a few murders under his belt - hires a political lobbyist (Adams) to help him try and change the law so that it is easier for him to continue with his slaughtering spree.
Pattinson would have to deal with a retired police officer (Downey Jr) who was constantly on his tail, as he just can't give up on catching the killer.
His mission to make murder simpler propels him into the political sphere in Washington D.C, where he becomes quite the controversial figure while keeping his evil intentions under wraps.
The likes of Forest Whitaker and Danielle Deadwyler were also set to join the star-studded cast.
But McKay has now ditched Average Height, Average Build to focus on a project about climate change and Netflix aren't interested in carrying on without him.
A spokesperson for the director said: "With the climate emergency having escalated a great deal, Adam McKay has decided to make his next directorial project a climate related one, so he will not be directing Average Height, Average Build."
