Warner Bros. Pictures is hoping the third time is the charm with their latest release date shift of The Losers, Sylvain White's adaptation of the best-selling comic. Just a week after shifting the film away from it's original April 9th release to June 4th--to distance itself from Clash of the Titans and give the producers some time to work on test screening feedback--the studio has once again moved the film back to April.
This time, it's been set to debut on April 23, 2010, which has it going up against Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and MacGruber. The latest release shift also gives it a week before the WB and its subsidiary New Line release the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street (April 30th). What are your thoughts on the latest release window?
The comic adaptation will star Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Chris Evans, Idris Elba, Columbus Short, Holt McCallany, Oscar Jaenada, Jason Patric and Peter Macdissi. Director White is helming from a screenplay by Peter Berg and James Vanderbilt.
Plot Concept: An explosive tale of double cross and revenge, "The Losers" centers upon the members of an elite U.S. Special Forces unit sent into the Bolivian jungle on a search and destroy mission. The team--Clay, Jensen, Roque, Pooch and Cougar--find themselves the target of a lethal betrayal instigated from inside by a powerful enemy known only as Max. Presumed dead, the group makes plans to even the score when they're joined by the mysterious Aisha, a beautiful operative with her own agenda. Working together, they must remain deep undercover while tracking the heavily-guarded Max, a ruthless man bent on embroiling the world in a new high-tech global war.
