The Road Being Pushed to 2009?
Dave Karger is floating the idea that The Road may become a 2009 release. He cites a few reasons for this but doesn’t report any confirmation yet, mainly that the big push will be for The Reader rather than The Road. Either way, the real loser, Karger says, will be Viggo Mortensen:
“Even though he’s got two other films this fall (Appaloosa and the upcoming Nazi drama Good), his best shot at a second consecutive nomination may be off the table…at least for this year.”
