It looks as if we”ll have to wait a little while longer to see Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo don their bowler hats in the dramatic comedy, The Brothers Bloom . According to FirstShowing, the film about two con artists and their last big job, is getting the shuffle treatment. The release date of the film has been pushed back from its original spot of January 16, to May 15, 2009.
Summit pushed the release from January due to an apparent “glut of similar upscale features in the January marketplace” and the immense positive buzz that the film has been gaining. “We knew from our early tests and from enthusiastic festival reception that this film needed a home when audiences could discover it,” said Summit’s President of Domestic Distribution Richie Fay.
I’ve been getting such a headache from all the shifts and changes for the 2009, and 2010 film slate. I seriously can’t keep up.
