Less than three weeks before the start of production, producers of the drama "Motor City", which had to be involved Gerard Butler, Mickey Rourke and Adrien Brody, unexpectedly sent the project on a shelf.
When an independent film just before the shooting process is minimized, and its team is going to go home, what happened, usually due to a lack of funding. However, the film directed by Albert Hughes found itself on the penalty box with a few non-standard for the industry circumstances. The filmmakers felt that distributors Warner Bros. didnâ€™t allocated "Motor city" of time, which would be enough for a full post-production: after the shooting at the director at all about there would be only 12 weeks.
Work on the drama was planned to start in Atlanta on September 17, and already at 31 March 2013th distribution company, played a large role in the sale of international rights to the project, has set out the film. For a picture whose production supervise Emmett / Furla Films, Envision Entertainment and Foresight, it would mean the risk of being incomplete to deadlines. But even if the creators of the "Motor city" ripe for the future by March, then a short time at least would affect the quality of the drama.
Notable in this story is the fact that Warner has not announced a start date of the movie in public, and because some Hollywood analysts are wondering what prevented discuss this side before coolly report decommissioning project?
Recall that the plot of "Motor City" revolves around a con artist (Butler) who gets out of prison, not rewind time for his crime. The hero is going to take revenge on his oppressors, and to return his beloved.
It is not clear what the fate of the picture is, but, to our knowledge, its producers did not intend to ever hold the project in their vaults and in their interests still run production.
