Sony's jam-packed 2006 slate has its first casualty with their $120 million Nicolas Cage comic adaptation "Ghost Rider" pushed back over half a year from July 14th 2006 to February 16th 2007 reports Variety.
The move won't likely be the last for Sony which is overflowing with twenty-eight pics lined up for 2006 from its five key divisions (NOT including their Classics division), including seven for the Summer. The move gives room for the Sony marketing department to take a breath as its also in the midst of a reshuffle.
It also allows room for the film to stand out on its own as a comic adaptation - three months before "Spider-Man 3" hits theatres. In July it would still be facing juggernaut competition from the likes of "Superman Returns" and "Pirates of the Caribbean 2".
