Narnia and Wolfman in tardiness shame
Not only is the ‘actors’ strike’ going to inflict a new Friday 13th on us, but it’s also gone and knackered two films that might be alright.
The third of the Narnia films and Benicio Del Toro’s Wolfman have been pushed back by the growing fear that productions will be beset by Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Terry Hatcher standing outside the studios in donkey jackets pushing copies of the Social Worker at the scabs.
Voyage of the Dawntreader now won’t see the light of day until May 2010, by which point we’ll all be heading down the picture house in magical lemons powered by nuclear fusion.
But never fear for it is to be replaced by G-Force, a Jerry Bruckheimer family flick tracing the dramatic tale of a band of animal commandoes battling to save the world from an evil billionaire – the very acme of high concept.
Wolfman, meanwhile, won’t be howling onto our screens until spring 2009. Which is just rubbish and makes me want to sulk.
