The transition of Miramax Films from Disney Pictures to new owners Filmyard, run by construction magnate Ron Tutor and Colony Capital, has understandably caused delays for the company’s two remaining projects from the old regime.
Deadline reports that the transition won’t be finalized until the end of the year or later due to “strictly logistical reasons”. As a result the spy thriller remake “The Debt” and the haunted house thriller “Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark” have both been postponed to undetermined dates in 2011.
‘Debt’, starring Helen Mirren and Sam Worthington, was previously slated for December 29th. ‘Dark’, with Guy Pearce and Katie Holmes, was set for January and recently scored a rave early reviews from The Los Angeles Times.
