CHICAGO – Before 1998’s “The Big Lebowski” there was 1996’s “Kingpin”, the Farrelly brothers bowling comedy that didn’t have the narrative intricacies of the Coen brothers’ classic, but had plenty of jokes about middle-aged men playing the sport. Today finds the release of “Kingpin” to Blu-ray for the first time, coming with only one new special feature.
Chicago-filmed 'Wanted' with Angelina Jolie did reshoots on March 15 and 16, 2008
Today is March 23, 2008. “Wanted” is currently slated to release in theaters on June 27, 2008, which is about three months from now.
We just learned that the film, which filmed in part in Chicago and stars Angelina Jolie, James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman, only a week ago (specifically on March 15 and 16, 2008) was doing even more reshoots. How do we know? The following Flickr images (also picked up on /Film) say it all.
They’re still doing additional photography on Wanted? From what I understand Chicago production wrapped in Late August or early September 2007. In February, director Timur Bekmambetov explained in a taped greeting at WonderCon that he could not be there because they are in the middle of filming “additional photography” (ie reshoots).
