Universal makes major changes to 2009 slate
Universal shifted around three of its projects for 2009. Fast and Furious moved up from June 12 to April 3, horror franchise hopeful The Wolfman got bumped from April 3 to Nov. 6 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 Nov. 6 date gives the movie more of a high-profile release
* Nottingham won't even start lensing until February/March

Harry Potter still affecting movie release dates
Universal moved Land of the Lost's release date from July 17, 2009 to June 5th. The news comes on the heals of the decision from Warner Bros. to move the next Harry Potter flick to Land of the Lost's old release date. The fantasy flick previously was slated to bow in theaters this November. Consequently, the release date to Universal's Fast and Furious, the fourth entry in the studio's popular car-racing franchise, will now be June 12th instead of June 5th.
