Why was this actor forced to do this film?

Roy Scheider played Chief Brody in Jaws (1975)

Later I believe he was cast in a film, may have been The Deer Hunter (1978), anyway he dropped out of the film for some reason.

He then seemed to be forced to do Jaws 2 (1978)

Why was he forced? Was it because he dropped out of the film he agreed to do?

    He had signed a three-picture deal with Universal. While he didn't want to do Jaws 2, it did fulfill that contract. He also negotiated a large raise as well as points.

      The rest of the time she posts stupid questions angled to get a certain answer. When you don't give her that answer she gets all bent out of shape and threatens to kill herself.

    He wasn't forced. He signed a contract. Contracts are legally binding.

    He was not FORCED to Jaws 2 he chose to do it to fill out his contract.

    Reading just the headline of an article is a lazy way to do research.

    The article below very clearly explains what happened.

    Focus on your mental health issues, sophie.

    He wasn't forced, he signed a contract after agreeing to do the movie.

    I would think "timing" would be one reason for dropping out of a project. Another would be contractual obligations.
