There’s nothing worse than eagerly awaiting the release of a film only to find out the studio has dragged it even further down the calendar. Today I deliver such news. Several films are shifting around their schedules and finding homes on dates far, far away from now. How far, you ask? So far that we’ll see the next season of”Mad Men” before their release.

The highly-anticipated Looper from director Rian Johnson (Brick, Th Brothers Bloom) will land in theaters September 28, 2012, a whole honkin’ 15 months from now. You could have 1 and 2/3 of a baby in that amount of time! Johnson stated, “I’d love for it to be sooner, but it’s a good date for the movie, hopefully it’ll be worth the wait.” It damn well better be. We want our Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt time travel flick, and we want it yesterday.

The Luc Besson-produced Lockout has moved from Februar 24 to April 12, 2012. Playing the Field, in which Gerard Butler tries to bang hot soccer moms, goes to March 9, 2012. Finally, Anonymous from Roland Emmerich, who’s taking a pause from destroying the earth to question Shakespeare‘s authorship, opens October 28th.

Don’t worry about these shifting schedules too much. I’m told there will be several movies of varying genres coming out over the next few months to tide you over.

It looks like director Gabriel Muccino (Seven Pounds, Pursuit of Happyness) is branching out with a project that won’t make everyone want to cry. It’s crazy enough to work.

Despite the unfortunately punny title, Playing the Field has some things going for it, not least of which is the cast, which added the likes of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Judy Greer to existing players Gerard Butler, Dennis Quaid, Jessica Biel, and Uma Thurman. Damn! There’s some good-lookin’ folk in this soccer dramedy.

The movie centers on Butler, who plays a troubled former soccer player who attempts to redeem himself by coaching his son’s soccer team, which seems to be ground zero for hot soccer moms, including Biel, Thurman, and Greer. Needless to say, his dalliances get create some tenions on his path to redemption. Quaid plays another handsome soccer coach, meaning that these kids’ games probably turn into hot orgies of the wealthy by halftime.

That said, the script is currently undergoing revisions by Stuart Bloomberg, who has shown a deft hand with Keeping the Faith and The Kids Are All Right. So it might not just be about good-looking older people banging. But if it is, that’s okay too. (LA Times)

Gerard Butler’s abdominal muscles are about to give Old Man Dennis Quaid a reality check. The objects of housewife fantasies past and present will star opposite one another in Gabriele Muccino‘s Playing The Field.

In the film, known cat-milker Quaid (see photo) and Butler will play rival soccer coaches in the suburbs. There’s no word whether they will compete off the field for the affections of Uma Thurman or Jessica Biel, but it’s reported that Thurman’s character gets tingly in the pants for Gerard Butler.

Muccino is known for having directed Seven Pounds and The Pursuit Of Happyness. And while his spelling sucks, he does have at least one okay film under his belt. And Dennis Quaid likes those odds! (Blackfilm)

Though I get bored watching soccer, it’d be hard for me to get bored staring at Jessica Biel and Uma Thurman. So I’m gonna call the new soccer movie Playing The Field a tie.

The film stars Gerard Butler as a pee-wee soccer coach lothario, acting as the coach to finally spend quality time with his son, but really to spend quality time with hot soccer moms. Of course, I don’t know that I’d want to date a woman who’s screaming, “put my son on the field you f*cking piece of shit! He’s way better than that waste of space Bergman. He’s picking his nose on the field, for god sake. Are you blind?” But I digress.

Thurman will play the sexy Hollywood version of a soccer mom (I guess we have Sarah Palin, but blood libels are also a turn-off), while Biel stars as Butler’s ex-wife. Playing The Field is helmed by Italian director Gabriele Muccino (The Pursuit of Happyness) and written by Robbie Fox (So I Married an Axe Murderer). The whistle will blow on filming very soon.
