‘Motor City’ shooting delayed

Producers, financiers say they cannot meet March 31 delivery deadline

Producers and financers have delayed shooting on Albert Hughes’ “Motor City,” saying that they could not meet a March 31 deadline for delivering the film.

Production had been scheduled to start later this month on Dark Castle’s “Motor City,” starring Gerard Butler and Adrien Brody.The film follows a felon who, after being released from prison, begins tracking down the men who framed him.

Joel Silver is producing through his Dark Castle shingle along with Andrew Rona, Ethan Erwin, Randall Emmett and George Furla. Mark Damon’s Foresight Unlimited and Emmett/Furla are financing.

A spokeswoman for Foresight said that the decision to move back the start date was due to a short post-production schedule and complicated visual and special effects. As a result, it would have been impossible to meet the firm March 31 delivery date without compromising the quality of the film, the rep added.

The spokeswoman noted that Foresight is in production on “2 Guns” starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg and in pre-production on Peter Berg’s “Lone Survivor.”

Production was due to start Sept. 17 in Atlanta with a planned April release date through Warner Bros.
