‘Musketeers’ gets 2,000-print bow

Just two weeks before the Nov. 12 bow of the Disney/Caravan swashbuckler “The Three Musketeers,” the studio has decided to increase the number of prints to more than 2,000 in response to exhib reaction at ShowEast.

Buena Vista distrib prexy Richard Cook said this is a Walt Disney Pictures record, narrowly beating “Snow White,” which was rolled out at around 1,900 copies.

“Musketeers” originally was slated to unspool in the 1,400-1,500-copy range. “Based on the reactions we’ve had, it became clear this is a movie that will play fabulously well … in excess of 2,000 theaters,” Cook added.

“Musketeers,” which stars Chris O’Donnell, Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland and Oliver Platt, was part of a larger show-and-tell by Caravan’s Joe Roth at ShowEast in Atlantic City (Daily Variety, Oct. 28), where a new end-title song by Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart and Sting was unveiled.

The pic, which is helmed by Stephen Herek from a script by David Loughery, also stars Tim Curry and Rebecca De Mornay. It is produced by Roth and Roger Birnbaum with Ned Dowd and William W. Wilson III. Jordan Kerner and Jon Avnet exec produce.
