Release dates set for Wachowski-Tykwer’s CLOUD ATLAS and Robert Rodriguez’s SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR
Of all the films currently in production, very few appear to be as inventive or intriguing as the ever-challenging Wachowski siblings and their upcoming teaming with Tom Tykwer, CLOUD ATLAS.
Screening for four buyers at Cannes this week, the film has been set to bow stateside on December 6 and will hit Berlin earlier, making the film, according to Anne Thompson, Oscar eligible. Originally budgeted at $170 million, the film ended up costing significantly less, at $101 million. The frugal trifecta apparently found their way around some financial issues, including getting Tom Hanks to bail on his often contractual back-end gross. Considering the cast assembled and its nearly 3 hour-long runtime, the film is definitely sounding like an epic bit of sci-fi.
In other release date news, SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR will hit theaters on October 4, 2013, with both Jessica Alba and Mickey Rourke confirmed to return. By the time of its Weinstein Company-slated release date, nearly nine years will have passed since the original film made a huge splash for director Robert Rodriguez. It’s been a long time coming and it is so good to finally have a release date set for this film, as it is easily one of the most interesting projects currently in production.
