Relativity Media’s bankruptcy has left creditors diving to seize control of four of the company’s unreleased films.
A film distribution leader that Relativity Media owed $85 million to asked the Manhattan Bankruptcy Court to allow it to seize four unreleased Relativity films, according to Variety. The company hopes to push the pictures out in order to recuperate from the overdue loans.
Some of these films include the Zach Galifianakis-Kristen Wig comedy “Masterminds” (September 30, 2016) and the Halle Berry thriller “Kidnap” (May 13, 2016). The other two films announced were “The Disappointments Room” (March 25, 2016) and “Before I Wake” (April 8, 2016).
“Masterminds” has a huge cast that includes Kristen Wig, Owen Wilson, Devin Ratray, and Zack Galifianakis as David Ghantt, a night guard at an armored car company in the south. The plot will center on Ghantt’s scheme to achieve the largest bank heist in American history; it will also be directed by Jared Hess and written by Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer.
“Kidnap” is directed by Luis Prieto and written by Knate Gwaltney. This film stars Halle Berry, Lew Temple, and Dana Gourrier with a plot that will revolve around Halle Berry’s character as a mother who goes to extreme lengths to save her kidnapped son.
Although, these films’ release dates have previously been pushed back multiple times, the films are now set for released in theaters in 2016.
