2013 won’t even start for another four months, and Universal’s already shaking it up. The studio just announced a slew of scheduling changes for next year, some minor and some not so minor.
The most significant shift is the one for Carl Erik Rinsch‘s 47 Ronin, which you may recall was originally scheduled to open this fall before Universal moved it into February 8, 2013. Now it’s moving yet again, to Christmas 2013. It’s well known that the 3D samurai epic has suffered its share of behind-the-scenes issues, so the ten-month delay can’t help but raise a few eyebrows. On the other hand, studios tend to reserve those ultra-competitive year-end slots for their most promising titles.
Also set for new dates are Jurassic Park 3D, Identity Theft, R.I.P.D., 2 Guns, Oblivion, Rush, and more. Hit the jump for details.

This one’s too good to hide after the break, so let’s begin this roundup of sequel news with a killer quote from Nicolas Cage. The actor often seems to go off the deep end with respect to movie roles, and one of his crazier ones in recent memory is the Neil LaBute remake of The Wicker Man. There’s no way to sum up the madness of the film; if you haven’t seen it, get that sucker now.
During a recent web chat with Empire, Cage was asked about revisiting old characters, and he said
I would like to hook up with one of the great Japanese filmmakers, like the master that made ‘Ringu,’ and I would like to take ‘The Wicker Man’ to Japan, except this time he’s a ghost.
Hideo Nakata is the director of whom he speaks, and it took me a couple extra seconds to call his name to memory as my mind was busy exploding. Was Cage serious? Hard to tell of late, given the other films he’s been doing. But I would watch that Ringu Man movie, whatever it turned out to be, without thinking twice.
After the break lurks a variety of news about an incredibly disparate collection of films: the theoretical follow-up to Before Sunset; Grown Ups 2; a possible R.I.P.D. sequel, and Riddick. Read More »
