According to Scifi.com Gerard Butler’s Game has been pushed back to Summer next year to complete visual-effects work.
Game, from writer/directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank), is the story of a futuristic video game in which players control actual human beings, including Butler’s Kabel.
Creating the video-game world poses visual-effects challenges. “Game is a ‘sim-world’ movie, so you have a young kid who is controlling an avatar,” Lucchesi said. “There are lots of visual effects.”
This is fine by me, and just means 2009 will be a heck of a year for movies. We have X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Watchmen, Avatar, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and now Game.
So with this delay, when will we be getting a trailer to feed our appetites?
“I think soon,” he said. “Christmas, I would think.”
