Universal makes major changes to 2009 slate

Universal shifted around three of its projects for 2009. Fast and Furious moved up from June 12th to April 3rd, horror franchise hopeful The Wolfman got bumped from April 3rd to November 6th and Nottingham was removed from 2009 entirely. The studio is now eying a 2010 release for the movie. Universal justified the moves by stating the following: * Fast and Furious is already completed * The Wolfman's November 6th date gives the movie more of a high-profile release * Nottingham won't even start lensing until February/March

Romanek leaves Wolfman production

Just weeks before production was to begin on Universal's The Wolfman, its director Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo) decided to part ways with the studio, claiming he would need more than the $100 million budget alloted by the studio. Universal is still intent on beginning production in March, and has several directors in mind to helm the film. The Wolfman, starring Benicio del Toro (Sin City) as a man who is bitten by a werewolf, also stars Anthony Hopkins (Beowulf) and Emily Blunt (Charlie Wilson's War).
