The Road Gets Delayed

The film adaptation of Cormac Macarty The Road originally was set for a Nov. 14 limited and Nov. 26 wide release, now it seems it has been shifted either for a December date or will be moved out of 2008 schedule all together.

THR states execs are scheduled to meet with "Road's" producers Thursday to discuss whether the movie will bow this year; the discussions come as Harvey Weinstein has pushed ahead with Stephen Daldry's "The Reader" for a Dec. 10 opening. But John Hillcoat's movie, shot this year mainly in Pennsylvania, is in post and decidedly not done, those familiar with the project said.
