Universal Movie Shuffle

Universal has shuffled its slate of movies around so that some come earlier, some come later and others are pushed to the next year.

From Latino Review (which I think just got it from Variety),"Marking major changes to next year's slate, Universal Pictures has pushed back the release of horror franchise hopeful 'The Wolfman' from April 3 to Nov. 6 and taken Ridley Scott's 'Nottingham' out of 2009 entirely.

Also, Universal's 'The Fast and the Furious 4' will now open on April 3, instead of June 12.

'Nottingham,' toplining Russell Crowe, will open in 2010, but Universal did not set a specific date.

Universal said the reshuffling was the sensible thing to do, considering that "Fast 4" is completed, while the Brian Grazer-produced "Nottingham" won't start lensing until February or March.

And moving 'Wolfman' -- a reboot toplining Benicio Del Toro -- to Nov. 6 gives the film more of a high-profile release, as well as ample time for post-production. Pic is directed by Joe Johnston."

What do you think of these release changes?
More news to come! Catch ya' later!
