Relativity Media has pushed back its untitled Farrelly/Wessler laffer nine months, moving the film from April 13 to Jan. 25. Studio, which had not yet launched a promo campaign, did not disclose why it had delayed the release but a source close to the situation said the pic’s not yet completed and still in post.
Film features a series of raunchy, interconnected stories, and the star-studded ensemble cast includes Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Johnny Knoxville, Gerard Butler, Anna Faris, Richard Gere, Uma Thurman, Naomi Watts and Emma Stone. Peter Farrelly and Charles B. Wessler are producing with Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh and GreeneStreet Films’ John Penotti.
The comedy will now open against FilmDistrict’s crime-actioner “Parker” and Sony’s “Battle of the Year: The Dream.”
A trio of wide releases are set for April 13: Lionsgate’s “Cabin in the Woods,” Fox’s “The Three Stooges” and FilmDistrict’s sci-fier “Lockout.”
