The buy-out of Miramax has caused an unfortunate delay for two of its upcoming films. John Madden’s The Debt starring Sam Worthington was slated for December 29th while the Guillermo del Toro-produced Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark starring Katie Holmes was set for January 21, 2011. Both films have now been postponed indefinitely while the logistics of the Miramax deal continue to be hammered out and, per The Playlist, “construction magnate Ron Tutor and Tom Barrack’s Santa Monica-based Colony Capital — put together their new shingle, Filmyard.”
Hit the jump for a synopsis on The Debt and Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. Both films look great so hopefully we’ll be seeing these films before too long.
