Universal Pictures has pushed back the release date of the upcoming epic adventure Everest.
The film starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin and John Hawkes was originally scheduled for release in 3D and IMAX on February 27, 2015. Instead, the film will now have a fall release seven months later on September 18th, 2015.
Universal had no official comment for the reason for the move. Could it possibly have to do with the other Everest movie being made?
Everest tells the true story of two different expeditions challenged by harsh elements that result in an epic struggle for survival. The film is directed by Baltasar Kormákur (2 Guns) and written by for the screen by Mark Medoff (Children of a Lesser God) and Oscar winner Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire). The film is currently shooting on location in Nepal and Italy.
