U shuffles ’05 release sked

'Interpreter,' 'Serenity' part of Universal delay

This article was updated on Nov. 24, 2004.

Universal Pictures has confirmed it has moved back the release date for upcoming Nicole Kidman starrer “The Interpreter,” causing a chain reaction of changes to its release sked over the next 12 months.

The Sydney Pollack-helmed pic has been moved from Feb. 18 to April 22.

This, in turn, means that “Serenity” — based on the now-canceled Fox skein “Firefly” created by Joss Whedon — has been moved from April 22 to Sept. 30. However, that displaces “Jarhead,” the Sam Mendes-helmed pic based on Anthony Swofford’s memoir about a Marine sniper in the first Gulf War. “Jarhead” will now be released on November 11th, 2005.

“Release dates and the distribution calendar are fluid documents,” said Paul Pflug, a U spokesman. “As a distributor, we’re always looking for the best dates available.”

Meanwhile, U has dated two other pics on the release calendar. Kate Hudson starrer “The Skeleton Key” — a thriller helmed by Iain Softley and penned by Ehren Kruger — has been set for July 8; Judd Apatow’s “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” a coming-of-age pic by the helmer and Steve Carell, has been slated for Nov. 23.
