The Lovely Bones

The Lovely Bones sure is getting a lot of press attention these days, and it really isn’t lovely coverage at all. Instead, news of tiffs between the art directors and Lordly Peter Jackson over the depiction of Heaven and of an actress who maybe wasn’t so happy with her direction have slipped out, leaving people wondering if maybe something isn’t quite right over in Bones-town. Even early on, the production had its problems, the biggest of which was the loss of Ryan Gosling over creative differences with Jackson (Gosling believed himself to be too young for the character, and in fairness he’s probably right. Make up and a beard may do wonders, but they don’t age you inside).

So is it any wonder that the latest news is that the release of The Lovely Bones has been pushed back? It’s almost to be expected, surely, especially with the extended coffee break of earlier this week whilst Peter and his art directors had at it. But whilst it may have been expected, no one would have expected quite this much of a delay, for what was once March is now “Fall”. That’s right, though it was due to be released on March 13th 2009 (my birthday, for those planning on sending a little something), the date is now a fuzzy Fall of 2009. That’s an awfully long time to fix Heaven up, don’t you think?
