Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig attend The Opportunity Network's seventh annual Night of Opportunity gala on Monday, April 7, 2014, in New York.

Just a few hours after word got out that Daniel Craig’s movie “The Whole Truth” had stopped production in Boston, the actor was in New York City with his wife, actress Rachel Weisz, to support the Opportunity Network, an organization that helps low-income high school kids get to college. There’s still no official word why the film, which is supposed to costar Renée Zellweger, shut down before filming started. Local movie workers told us that it was Craig who allegedly pulled out of the gig. But Ira Singer, the town administrator in Middleton, where director Courtney Hunt planned to film scenes, said he was told that the production was delayed because one of the stars was not under contract. “When we first set up for their schedule, it was to be next week or the end of this week,” he said, adding that production would take place in a residential area in town. If Craig isn’t in Boston this spring, he might turn up in Ireland. The Independent reports that he and Weisz have rented a place in a Dublin suburb, not far from where she will film the movie “The Lobster” with Colin Ferrell and John C. Reilly over the next few weeks. Craig was spotted at the Four Seasons in Boston on Sunday.
