Miramax moves ‘House’

While the major studios are adding entries to the summer release schedule, specialized distributor Miramax Films said Friday it plans to take advantage of a hole it sees in the much slower spring season.

The company confirmed plans for an 800-screen wide release for “The House of the Spirits” on April 1, moving it back from a planned wide release on Feb. 25.

Miramax said “House of Spirits” was pushed back as a result of Columbia Pictures’ decision earlier in the week to move its high-powered Jack Nicholson/Michelle Pfeiffer starrer “Wolf” from March 24 to June 24.

Perfect opening

In a statement, Miramax co-chairman Bob Weinstein said, “With the delayed release of ‘Wolf,’ we feel there is a perfect opening in the crowded marketplace for a high-quality commercial film.”

“House of Spirits” stars Meryl Streep, Jeremy Irons, Glenn Close, Winona Ryder, Antonio Banderas and Vanessa Redgrave.

The picture tracks three generations of the Trueba family in South Africa.
