Just a couple months before its release...
The latest film from Joe Carnahan has lost its release plans with only two months before its planned premiere. Stretch, which is helmed by the director of The Grey and stars Patrick Wilson, has had its March 21st release date plans scrapped according to < href=http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/universal-drops-patrick-wilson-movie-673093 target=new>THR.
Universal is looking into "creative options" for a release, according to the site. The action-comedy cost less than $5 million and that will allow for potential options outside of theatrical release. It could hit Video on Demand or other potential sources. A theatrical release would likely have cost between $20 million to $40 million in marketing, theater fees and the like.
