Is Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" on the move?
According HitFix's Kristopher Tapley, it might be: "Word is Paramount execs were getting their first look at the movie over the weekend, but almost no one has seen it yet as the director has been hard at work whittling down a typically massive first cut (with elements that would easily yield an NC-17 rating, by the way). At this point, a release date bump is looking very likely. But does it go to 2014 or to December?"
The Hollywood Reporter followed up with a report that the current cut is 180 minutes long, and most likely not ready for a sneak peek at the New York Film Festival. The NYFF hosted a first look at Scorsese's "Hugo" in 2011; the 3D family flick wasn't finished but still wowed audiences who'd gathered for the extravaganza.
This move could leave the rest of Paramount's 2013 lineup up in the air. Kenneth Branagh's "Jack Ryan: Shadow One" is currently set for a Christmas release, but that could get bumped to next year and have "Wall Street" take its place. Or perhaps Paramount will go with the 2014 release for Scorsese's film and push Alexander Payne's "Nebraska" for Oscar nods instead.
Really, though, how long do we have to wait until we can see DiCaprio dancing like a maniac and tossing dwarfs?
