Sans helmer, ‘Dallas’ breaks date

Par moves 'Barnyard' to summer season

Fox has undated the bigscreen version of “Dallas,” previously set for Nov. 10, and hasn’t yet set a new release date.

Move comes soon after director Robert Luketic exited the project. Producers are looking for another helmer.

Fox distrib prexy Bruce Snyder said the pic wouldn’t be ready in time for its previous date.

Among other upcoming releases, Par has moved toon “Barnyard” to the summer and Warner has skedded its 2007 tentpoles.

“Barnyard” is now skedded for July 28. It was previously set to go Oct. 6, a date it was moved to from Jan. 13.

On Oct. 6, “Barnyard” would have come out a week after Sony toon “Open Season.” It’s now set for a week after Sony’s other 2006 toon, “Monster House” and a week before WB toon “Ant Bully.”

Par distrib topper acknowledged both dates are crowded, but said he’d rather release “Barnyard” while kids are out of school and more likely to go to theaters on weekdays.

Meanwhile, Warner has claimed July 13, 2007, for “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.” That’s the next frame after July 4, which DreamWorks and Par have claimed for “Transformers.”

Studio has set its other major summer tentpole, Roland Emmerich’s “10,000 B.C.,” for July 27, next year.

Studio has set “Ocean’s Thirteen” for June 8, 2007.
