Something's gone Wong again and again and again: Weinsteinco's no-go on Blueberry for Christmas



The Weinsteinco/Dimension end-of-2007 release list just popped over the transom: Control is rolling out now; Frank Darabont’s The Mist creeps along November 21; I’m Not There materializes the same date; Hayden Christensen is actually Awake November 30; Grace is Gone detonates December 7; Denzel Washington’s Great Debaters tries to make a point on Christmas Day; Woody Allen’s crime story (or criminal act, according to some early reviews) Cassandra’s Dream opens December 28, approximately in Picturehouse’s newly minted Spanish-language horror slot (Pan’s Labyrinth; The Orphanage); and Wong Kar-Wai’s My Blueberry Nights is… is… erm… (I’m looking forward to seeing in next month—a lot of reviewers have suggested it would be improved by subtitles, and I’ll see it with Greek ones on the opening night of November’s festival in Thessaloniki.) [A late report: the U.S. will see it for Valentine’s Day 2008. Happy V.D.!]

What about replacing Mr. Spacey with another actor? Mr. Plummer, perhaps.
“That would theoretically be fantastic,” Mr. Rothman said he responded. “But I have supervised 450 movies over the course of my career. And what you are saying is impossible. There is not enough time.”

“Would I like to see Wormwood in a theater on a big screen? You betcha. I’d be disingenuous to argue otherwise. But we’re all part of, like it or not, an industry, and what Netflix offers is an opportunity to do different kinds of films in different ways. Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”
