Black Label Media and Lionsgate, who teamed up on “La La Land” last year, have come to an impasse over the handling of the release of two new films – with both looking likely to end up as cinematic children of divorce.
The first is “Tron: Legacy” and “Oblivion” director Joseph Kosinski’s true story firefighting drama “Granite Mountain” starring Josh Brolin, Taylor Kitsch, Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller and Jeff Bridges. The film, which nabbed a very high score in a test screening recently, had been set for a September 22nd release.
That date is now up in the air due to this disagreement over the film’s marketing and distribution plans and so will depart with other distributors are already reportedly vying for this and the second film.
That second film is “Soldado,” the Stefano Sollima-directed sequel to Denis Villenueve’s “Sicario”. Taylor Sheridan returns to pen the script, while Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin reprise their characters for what is described as a story about the escalation of drugs along the border of Mexico.
