In October, while it tried to figure out its future in the wake of the crushing level of sexual misconduct allegations against co-founder Harvey Weinstein, The Weinstein Company wiped the rest of its 2017 slate clean by pulling both The Current War and Polaroid from its schedule. Now, The Weinstein Company has pulled three more movies from its release schedule, giving it a similarly light start to 2018. This comes from The Hollywood Reporter, which says The War With Grandpa, Mary Magdalene, and The Upside have all had their upcoming release dates canceled, putting them on the shelf with The Current War and Polaroid.
Both The War With Grandpa (which stars Robert De Niro and Uma Thurman) and Mary Magdalene (which stars Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix) had already faced delays, with the former originally set to come out last April before getting pushed to October and then February 23, and the latter set to come out in November before getting delayed to March 30. The Upside, a remake of French comedy The Intouchables that stars Nicole Kidman, Kevin Hart, and Bryan Cranston, was set to come out on March 9.
