Wolfman gets delayed

12.10.2008

If you were excited that Universal's big-budget redo of THE WOLFMAN was only four months away, I've got a silver bullet for you - the film has been pushed back seven months to November 6th. To help fill that April void, Uni is moving up FAST AND FURIOUS from June 12th to WOLFMAN's previous date of April 3rd. The release switch was pretty simple - FAST AND FURIOUS is done and WOLFMAN, which has complex FX shots, is far from it. The move allows WOLFMAN and director Joe Johnston more time to work in post-production on all the FX work. And with FAST out of the way in June, it allows Uni to focus on the Will Ferrell adventure-comedy LAND OF THE LOST, which hits theaters on June 12. Universal has also pushed back the date of the Ridley Scott/Russell Crowe Robin Hood adventure NOTTINGHAM. They've moved the project, which hasn't even begun filming yet, to a unspecified 2010 date. Whew. That's a lot of moving.

Extra Tidbit: I think Johnston needed more time to CGI Benicio Del Toro surfing on top of a moving minivan to The Beach Boys.

Oh, well, FATF deserves a Spring release. Or a September one. Not prime box office season when it'll more likely become one of the forgotten blockbusters.

I care more about Fast and Furious (horrible title, what the hell thats basically the title of the first one). I hope that moving it to April will not make it less successful, its a summer type of movie

That blows...

The Wolfman now slated for some date in Nov. '09? yikes! that blows........why not October at least before Halloween? this is beginning (albeit slightly) to feel like "Trick R' Treat"(s) release scenario/dilemma.

I thought Wolfman was more of a Winter/Fall flick to begin with...I'll be more in the mood for it then. Still sucks I have to wait but at least it will be perfected

Talk about lame ass replacements.

But if Johnston and Co. need to time to refine the FX, so be it. I'd rather wait a few more months for an awesome movie, than have a rushed, crap one...
