Ed Westwick is being replaced. Deadline reports the Gossip Girl‘s role will be recast and reshot for the upcoming BBC TV series Ordeal by Innocence.

The cast also includes Bill Nighy, Anna Chancellor, Matthew Goode, Eleanor Tomlinson, Anthony Boyle, Luke Treadaway, Morven Christie, Crystal Clarke, Ella Purnell, and Alice Eve.
