Backers Of Spacey's Bobby Darin Biopic Back Out
MDP WORLDWIDE and Mgm have withdrawn from the flick, which is set to begin production on 6 October (03), following a scheduling conflict. According to MDP, Spacey wants the film completed by the end of the year (03), a demand which the company says it cannot meet as it has other commitments.
Distribution of the movie is now expected to be taken on by LION'S GATE FILMS in North America.
Spacey says, "I am enormously grateful to MDP's faith in getting the film this far. I am very pleased the film is going forward on schedule and will continue to be thankful to MDP for making a decision that is clearly in the best interest of the film."
