Apollo 18 Launch Pushed to April
Posted 01.06.11 by Ryan
The sci-fi horror movie Apollo 18 recently began shooting at the end of December, poised for a March 4, 2011, release. That tight a shooting schedule may be the quickest turnaround in movie history, though director Gonzalo López-Gallego is being given a slight reprieve.
The Weinstein Company has pushed back the release date to April 22, more than six weeks later than originally planned. It's possible the movie may be pushed again since the April 22 date is just a week after the Weinstein Company releases Scream 4.
Brian Miller scripted the movie, which uses "found footage" of the undocumented Apollo 18 space mission, where, according to the recently released poster, other life forms exist. Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) is producing the movie, which finishes production on January 13.
