Safe House Director's Previous Feature Finally Hitting Theaters

It's only taken a few years, but the success of director Daniel Espinosa's Safe House means that Harvey Weinstein is finally ready to let the filmmaker's Swedish-language hit Easy Money -- née Snabba Cash -- off his shelf on July 27. The distributor cited the eventual Stateside publication of the film's source novel (as opposed to Safe House's $83 million-and-counting domestic haul) as his motivation: “We love the movie, but we needed the book to be out here,” he told the LAT. Right. As always with Harvey, all release dates are subject to change and/or revocation at any time, so remember to mark your calendars in pencil. [LAT]

    I'm assuming that July 27 is the date that Harvey Weinstein announces that he's knocking back the release for another year.

    Two years ago there was talk of an American remake with Zac Efron in the lead. Rachel Weisz and Darren Aronofsky were also supposedly involved or interested or something.

    Interesting that it takes two years later for the original to arrive. I'm guessing the remake is dead.
