Warner Bros. no longer releasing Seventh Son

08.16.2013

Ugh, I hate studio divorces. The films gotta be split up, and some will be rejected while others will find a comfy home with one of their parents.

With the partnership between Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures coming to an end, we've seen some developments on which studio would be taking which projects with them. The first instance of this was Legendary picking up the rights to Christopher Nolan's INTERSTELLAR instead of keeping their interest with the SUPERMAN/BATMAN flick which I think is an interesting move on their part.

Another project that has been tossed around is SEVENTH SON starring Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore. The first reports said that Warner Bros. had just flat out dropped the film off their schedule. Then like that cool Uncle with the awesome beach house, Universal decided to pick up the fantasy flick. Actually, Legendary's new home is with Universal so it's more of a my two dad's scenario. But Universal has a distribution only deal as of this moment so a release date is up in the air. Will it still hit in January? Can't tell as of now.

Universal will soon have to decide the fate of other projects like Duncan Jones' WARCRAFT, MASS EFFECT, HOT WHEELS, and Michael Mann's CYBER with Chris Hemsworth. To co-finance or not co-finance? That is the question.

This looked terrible anyway. But I still cant wrap my head around why Warner Bros is not doing everything it can to hold on to legendary. They have had a string of the best genre movies for a decade and are now setting up shop for a studio system that is destined to fail. Seriously Vivendi/Universal is 17 billion dollars in debt and likewise sold Activision/Blizzard back to themselves. Mind boggling why anyone would sell off their purebred cash cows and keep repeatedly plunking down dough for

I can't get excited for Seventh Son at all, but I do hope the other projects, particularly Michael Mann's Cyber and that Mass Effect film, don't suffer as a result of this.

And guess what WB had to say....

...."Thank fuck for that, now when it bombs we won't be held accountable."

I don't want the film to bomb but it's pretty clear now that Jeff Bridges really doesn't bring in the big bucks for movies like this and as much as I want to see it, I already feel the same outcome as R.I.P.D. However the biggest problem with R.I.P.D. was how late the marketing was.
