Bette Midler has been giving production staff a hard time on the set of Jinxed. Now, producer Michael Vlner is fighting back. He was getting a second movie, Dry Hustle, ready for Midler. But he’s gone shopping for a new leading lady, leaving Midler out in the cold.
Viner says, “After having Bette do a different 90 to 180-degree turn at every conference, 1 decided I’d rather not make the movie at all than make it with her. Life is too short for so much aggravation.
