There’s been a change in the cast of “The Slap”. Uma Thurman is replacing Mary Louise Parker who was previously announced to play the lead road in the remake of the Australian mini-series “The Slap”. According to Variety.com, Mary Louise Parker contracted pneumonia and needs to recover. The 8 part series ordered by NBC months earlier sees Zachary Quinto,Thandie Newton and Peter Sarsgaard in a family drama which starts the day a man slaps a child for misbehavior. The tension quickly escalates to something more.
Filming is currently underway in New York and is expected to premiere on NBC in 2015.
