Pushed Ahead of Schedule, 'Fast and Furious' to See Spring Release


Pushed Ahead of Schedule, 'Fast and Furious' to See Spring Release
While 'Fast and Furious' is pulled out from the summer line-up, 'The Wolfman' and 'Nottingham' have to see their release date schedules being shifted back.


"Fast and Furious" will come out sooner than expected. After previously being moved back to June 12, 2009 tentpole, the latest sequel to 2001 street racing film, "The Fast and the Furious", is now expected to be debuted on the big screen on April 3, 2009 alongside Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler-starring romantic comedy "The Ugly Truth".

This Justin Lin-directed movie takes over the slot left by "The Wolfman", which has been moved back to November 6, 2009 date from its initial April 3, 2009 schedule. Reasoning on the reshuffling of the release date, Universal Pictures claimed as reported by Variety that it "was the sensible thing to do", especially with "Fast and Furious" has been completed.

Other than changes done for "Fast and Furious" and "The Wolfman", another Universal film, "Nottingham", also undergoes release date shifting. The Ridley Scott's action drama toplining Russell Crowe has been cut out from the 2009 slate entirely, and now eyes a 2010 release though the studio have yet to set a specific date.

"Fast and Furious" teams up once again the original "The Fast and the Furious" cast ensemble, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster as the film will mark the return of the foe-turned-ally duo, ex-con Dom Toretto and agent Brian O'Conner. This fourth film will put the pair in a new mission that pushes the limits of what's possible behind the wheel to bring down their shared enemy.
