It looks like Sienna Miller's "It Girl" status might have beeen officially revoked. Kung Fu Rodeo has a look at the poster for her new fantasy film Stardust, except Miller didn't seem to make the cut. Directed by Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake), the film stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert De Niro, Claire Danes, Charlie Cox, and finally Miller. However, she is nowhere to be seen on the full page ad; even Ricky Gervais, who has a tiny role in the film managed to snag a spot. The film is based on the Neil Gaiman novel of the same name, and centers on a young man who crosses into a magical realm on a romantic quest only to be swept up into a greater destiny. The project has stayed pretty low on the radar in the crop of summer blockbusters, but after we have had our fill of web flinging and galactic robot battles, it might be a nice change of pace.

I'm not all that surprised Miller is not front and center on the poster since her character is a pretty minor one in the book, so I would assume the same holds true for the film. It seems that not that long ago Miller was everywhere -- granted, they were usually out-of-focus paparazzi pictures. But it seems that the failure of Factory Girl went way beyond dashing The Weinsteins' Oscar hopes; could it be possible that Miller's face on a poster has become something of a liability? Hopefully when Miller takes over for Lindsay Lohan in the upcoming Dylan Thomas biopic she will finally earn some movie poster real-estate.
