Distributor remains mum on reason
Thursday talks at The Weinstein Company about what to do with The Road‘s have resulted in an official bump to early 2009. The Cormac McCarthy adaptation directed by John Hillcoat was slated for a limited release in early November with a slow roll-out to follow.
According to THR, reps at the Weinstein Company refused to comment on the shift, however, buzz from those involved in the production seem to be sighing with relief. Says THR, a longer post-production schedule will allow the team to properly complete Road. It’s also dodging a busy Oscar season.
Word is, The Road – starring Viggo Mortensen and Kodi Smit-McPhee – will bow in February or March 2009.
