"Overlawyering" at Warner Bros. would result in the studio's decision to not releasing the film as scheduled on Oct. 21
Sometimes things just work out of control. Don't be upset coz everything has meant to be. That's life. And just like how our life sometimes doesn't work as smooth as we're hoping, the same thing happens too in movie world.
Following New York Daily News report which mentioned "overlawyering" at Warner Bros. would result in the studio's decision to cancel the release of "Strangers with Candy," Daily Variety reported that the film won't be released as scheduled on Oct. 21. The news reads "out of concern that the producers didn't secure all the needed rights, including for such items as posters and props."
Warner Independent Pictures, which is Warner Bros' specialty unit, had bought "Strangers" from David Letterman's Worldwide Pants Company for $3 million at this year's Sundance Film Festival. Per a source, other studios were ready to pick up the film if Warner's dropped it.
"Strangers with Candy" is a comedy film directed by Paul Dinello and stars the like of Amy Sedaris and Stephen Colbert, with supporting performances from Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
