Nicole Kidman’s starring role in Grace of Monaco has just been pushed to next year. Now, Kris Tapley is reporting that it’s possible Martin Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street will be moved to next year, like Shutter Island did. It’s a matter of editing, and needing more time overall, apparently. What a drag that would be. Very few films can survive a jump like that. If it happens this will be the second collaboration between Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese to do it, and the second DiCaprio film in a row (after Gatsby did it the year before).
Meanwhile, many films are still big fat question marks, like American Hustle, Monuments Men, Her, The Counselor. But it’s only October. There is still plenty of time.
Martin Scorsese, like Woody Allen, like Steven Spielberg continues make vital, memorable films and shows no sign of slowing down. If they’re editing that means he’s working alongside the meticulous Themla Schoonmaker and that makes it worth the wait. But here’s hoping it finishes in time for this year because no film is more highly anticipated.
