Weinsteins Put 'Grace of Monaco' in March 2014, Want to End 'Scream'
Just recently, The Weinstein Company moved their biopic Grace of Monaco out of Oscar contention with the intention of moving the film to the spring of 2014 because the film wasn't going to be finished in time for the original release. Now Box Office Mojo has learned the film is getting a mostly unfortunately release date of March 14th, 2014 (against Need for Speed), which likely means it will be forgotten by the time awards season rolls around later in the year. But if anyone can get Academy members to remember the film, it's master of publicity Harvey Weinstein, so maybe the film shouldn't be counted out of the race just yet.
Now how about a quick update on the Scream franchise?At the Zurich Film Festival, Indiewire has word from Harvey that he's been talking to Bob Weinstein, running their Dimension Films arm, to get Scream 5 off the ground. But it's not because he wants to keep the franchise alive. Weinstein said, "Everyone lived in Scream 4. I’m begging him to do the movie and just end it. We’ve milked that cow.” Of course, if the film was successful and most of the original cast died in the sequel, they would likely try to reboot the franchise if it made them enough money. And we don't need that to happen.
