Paramount Moves Release Date of Shutter Island to February 2010

Shutter Island

Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting that Paramount is pushing back the release of Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island from November 2009 to February 2010, effectively eliminating it from any award consideration this year. The reason given: Paramount can't afford the tens of millions of dollars needed to promote the movie at this time. Also, star Leonardo DiCaprio won't be available to promote the film this fall.

Shutter Island is adapated from the thriller of the same name by Dennis Lehane. The film takes place in the year 1954 with U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels (DiCaprio) and his new partner, Chuck Aule (played by Mark Ruffalo) arriving on Shutter Island, home of Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane, to investigate the disappearance of a patient. Multiple murderess Rachel Solando is loose somewhere on this remote and barren island, despite having been kept in a locked cell under constant surveillance. As a killer hurricane bears relentlessly down on them, a strange case takes on even darker, more sinister shades -- with hints of radical experimentation, horrifying surgeries, and lethal countermoves made in the cause of a covert shadow war. No one is going to escape Shutter Island unscathed, because nothing at Ashecliffe Hospital is what it seems. But then neither is Teddy Daniels.
