Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street seems to be going through a bit of turmoil. The film was originally slated for a November 15th release, but troubles on the editing front have lead to news that it could be pushed back into 2014. Apparently now the time for panic is not quite upon us as a beam of hope still remains that will push the film out into theaters by December 25th.
The Leonardo DiCaprio headliner which also features Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey was originally cut at three hours, but Scorsese is now looking to trim it down to a leaner two hours by Thanksgiving. The legendary filmmaker has been having some trouble getting it all together, but hopes to get it done in time for Oscar considerations for this year.
The Wolf of Wall Street is one of my most anticipated films still for this year, assuming of course it still comes out this year. The trailer really delivered what looked to be a very high energy film with some great performances from DiCaprio and McConaughey. I’m intrigued again to see how Jonah Hill does in his role in yet another film with Oscar hopes as I still am not sure he deserved to be nominated in Moneyball. We shall see if Scorsese’s film makes it out before the end of the year, time will tell.
