The cash-strapped Weinstein Company has shaken up its release schedule once again according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Michael Cera-led comedy “Youth in Revolt”, which took in good notices at the Toronto Film Festival, has been pushed from October 30th to January 15th.
The reasoning seems to be more to move it away from the awards-film pre-Xmas clutter and into a more economically-advantageous and less competitive first quarter 2010.
The move of “The Road” to a wide Thanksgiving release on November 25th means that the company looks to be shifting arounds its plans for the all-star musical “Nine”.
Instead of a wide Thanksgiving release, “Nine” now looks to open in just a limited release on November 25th and will then expand wide on the Christmas weekend when various musicals such as “Chicago,” “Dreamgirls” and “Sweeney Todd” have seen bows in recent years.
The just acquired Toronto/Venice smash hit, Tom Ford’s “A Single Man”, hasn’t set a specific date but the company is said to be already targeting a mid-December limited release as the film looks likely to be a key awards-season player.
