With the threat of bankruptcy looming over Ryan Kavanaugh’s beleaguered Relativity Media, three of the company’s most high-profile film titles in the can are being gussied up and put on sale.
The Wrap reports that Natalie Portman’s troubled Western “Jane Got a Gun,” raunchy Sundance comedy “The Bronze,” and the Nicholas Hoult-Felicity Jones action-thriller “Collide” are all being screened for a handful of buyers with ‘Gun’ in particular looking to be the most valuable property.
It’s important enough that Harvey Weinstein has apparently been asked to rescue it as the film was originally going to be jointly distributed with The Weinstein Company on September 4th. Now Harvey may do it alone, but whatever happens producer Scott Steindorff is certain the star-studded Western won’t be hitting in September and could well be pushed back into 2016.
Relativity has struggled to meet its contractual obligations with the legal and financial situation at the studio uncertain. The issues seem to have essentially killed “The Crow” reboot, while the status of other films on their schedule including “Kidnap,” “Before I Wake” and “The Disappointments Room” remains unclear.
