Pride And Glory

There's an interesting struggle developing between New Line chief Bob Shaye and Pride And Glory writer-director Gavin O'Connor who, together with the film's stars, Colin Farrell and Ed Norton, has voiced his dissatisfaction with the film's release being delayed. Apparently Shaye doesn't like the film and wants to off load the $30 million production, and in retaliation O'Connor is reportedly refusing to deliver a script he owes the studio whose future is said to be under discussion. Click the headline to read Variety's story. Whatever the exact circumstances behind the delay, it's just a shame for audiences because the trailer looks promising and the cast is a cool one.

The writing had been on the wall for some time. The bosses have gone, the company's been absorbed in the mother company, but, other than that, it's business as normal. Strange.
