Relativity Media has attempted to maintain an appearance of normalcy following its bankruptcy, claiming that it would stick with an early October release date for heist comedy Masterminds. But reassurances from Ryan Kavanaugh’s company that the film is coming out as planned have been scratched, with the Kristen Wiig-Zach Galifianakis comedy now postponed indefinitely. Variety learned about the postponement from international distributors, who complained that they were unable to release the film until it comes out in the U.S. and they now have no idea when, or if, that will happen.
Distributors learned of the delay Friday from Relativity international president Camela Galano. The company did not acknowledge the move until confronted with an email Galano sent more than two dozen foreign film operators. “Relativity Studios has moved Masterminds from its scheduled October 9th release date,” the company then confirmed in a statement, “and we expect to announce a new 2015 release date shortly.”
After tons of rumors, Bill Murray, who played Dr. Peter Venkman in Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II, will appear in director Paul Feig’s upcoming installment of the franchise, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Murray has long been resistant to star in a third Ghostbusters. He told David Letterman earlier this year that his hesitancy stems from Ghostbusters II not having been as well-received as the first one. Dan Akroyd, also from the original cast, has already confirmed his appearance in the movie on Twitter.
Feig’s film, which is currently shooting, stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth and many more. It hits theaters on July 15, 2016.
