Universal pits Wolfman against hearts and flowers in 2010; other movies also get the shuffle

BenecioDelToro_WolfmanIf you were hoping to do some howling at the moon this fall in anticipation of Benecio del Toro’s turn as the titular role in The Wolfman (which is a reboot of the classic Universal Pictures movie monster franchise), I’m afraid you’re going to be gravely disappointed.

According to Variety, the movie will now be released on February 12, 2010 as counter-programming to a slew of love-themed movies including the New Line’s star-filled romantic comedy Valentine’s Day, a Robert Pattinson-starring romantic drama called Remember Me, and Disney’s 3D re-release of Beauty and the Beast.

Moving into its November 6 timeslot this year will be an alien abduction drama starring Milla Jovovich called The 4th Kind, which the studio had picked up from Gold Circle Films.

Four other movies that got moved around on Universal’s plate include:

March 12: Green Zone — Directed by Paul Greengrass and starring Matt Damon, it’s the story of a pair of CIA agents who are trailing some WMDs and the foreign journalist who is following them for the story.

April 16: MacGruber — It’s based on skit which is a parody of a popular TV show which is also getting its own feature adaptation.

June 11: Get Him to the GreekA sequel of sorts to Forgetting Sarah Marshall where the rock star who got in Jason Segel’s way is now the MacGuffin, er, “star” who needs to be escorted to the world famous Greek theater in L.A. by a neophyte intern.

Somewhere in the First Quarter 2010: Repo Men — Not to be confused with the 1980s punk cult hit and definitely not to be confused with Repo! The Genetic Opera with which it shares a basic concept—a future megacorporation which provides organ transplants on a payment plan also repossesses them if you fall behind in payments—the film stars Jude Law and Forest Whitaker and was once known as Repossession Mambo. I think I like the old name better.
