New Walt Disney chief Rich Ross has continued his revisionist streak by nixing another project.

The Hollywood Reporter brings news that, hot on the heels of canceling what would've been a major tentpole release, 'Captain Nemo: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,' Ross has now put the kibosh on 'Wedding Banned,' a comedy that was set to star Robin Williams, Diane Keaton and Anna Faris. The production company, Mandeville Films, is now free to shop the project around town. New Walt Disney chief Rich Ross has continued his revisionist streak by nixing another project.

The Hollywood Reporter brings news that, hot on the heels of canceling what would've been a major tentpole release, 'Captain Nemo: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,' Ross has now put the kibosh on 'Wedding Banned,' a comedy that was set to star Robin Williams, Diane Keaton and Anna Faris. The production company, Mandeville Films, is now free to shop the project around town.

'Wedding Banned' would have revolved around a divorced couple (Williams and Keaton) who kidnap their daughter (Faris) on her wedding day to try to stop her from making the same mistakes they did.

Why the cancellation? It looks like Ross might not want Disney to be behind any more potentially bad Robin Williams comedies -- 'Old Dogs' has pretty much tanked, grossing barely $35 million since opening on November 25. It might also be because Ross seems to be more a fan of sci-fi/fantasy than wacky comedies; although he beached 'Nemo,' he has said that 'Twilight' should've been a Disney movie, and has recently given the green light to a 'Black Hole' reboot to be helmed by 'Tron Legacy' director Joseph Kosinski.

What do you think? Why was 'Wedding Banned' banned from Disney?
