In the span of less than a month, Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street has gone from “a possible delay to 2014” to “Merry Christmas!” The L.A. Times is reporting that three sources close to the movie say it will be ready in time for December 25th. Scorsese and longtime editor Thelma Schoonmaker were determined to finish editing the movie before November 25th when Scorsese would have to leave to be a judge at the Marrakesh Film Festival. The Wolf of Wall Street is based on the memoir by Jordan Belfort (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) and chronicles the rise and fall of the avaricious Wall Street trader. The movie co-stars Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey.
However, this means that Paramount will probably move Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit to early 2014 so that the studio doesn’t release two of their films at the same time. Paramount is expected to soon make an official announcement regarding their release dates.
