Vergara picks TV over new movie

Sofia Vergara has reportedly dropped out from The Paperboy, so she can focus on her TV commitments.
The Modern Family star had been set to appear in Lee Daniels' upcoming drama, but when the start date of the filming schedule got pushed back, it clashed with shooting for the third season of her hit TV show.
"Modern Family is her first priority, so once she was made aware of the change in schedule, she had no choice but to pull," a source told Deadline.
Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron and Tobey Maguire star in The Paperboy, which is based on Pete Dexter's novel about a newspaper reporter who returns home to Florida to investigate the possible unlawful imprisonment of a death-row inmate.
Colombian-born Sofia has been keeping busy on the film front.
Along with The Smurfs, she has also shot Garry Marshall's Valentine's Day sequel, New Year's Eve and the Farrelly brothers' The Three Stooges and lent her voice to Happy Feet 2.
