The studio today said that A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas now has a premiere date: Nov. 4, 2011. Meanwhile, The Apparition, the Todd Lincoln-directed horror thriller starring Ashley Greene, has been taken off its Sept. 9, 2011, date and now will bow sometime in 2012.
EXCLUSIVE: DFFF, the German state feature film fund, has awarded €1.8 million ($2.3 million) to David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method and €952,348 ($1.2 million) to Dark Castle’s The Apparition, starring Ashley Greene (Twilight: Eclipse). It’s also backing Joe Wright’s action movie Hanna from Focus Features, but hasn’t fixed the amount yet.
Christine Berg, head of DFFF, tells me Hollywood funding applications are coming in much later this year. It shows how difficult it has become piecing together multiparty finance. “But I’m not worried. Applications come in a little later and later each year,” she tells me.
The DFFF has awarded €10.5 million to 32 projects in the first half of 2010. It has €60 million annually to play with.
A Dangerous Method, which shot at Cologne’s MMC Studios, has already picked up €1.2 million from Germany’s Federal Film Board and regional fund Filmstiftung NRW.
Last year, the DFFF awarded €22.1 million to 38 international big-budget features including Inglorious Basterds, Anonymous and Unknown White Male.
