Feast’s future looks dim; Chris Moore says Weinsteins are “just going to sit on it”

The Project Greenlight 3 film, Feast, was originally scheduled to be released last Friday, and could have even been released last Christmas. Bob Weinstein liked the film, according to Matt Damon, and the Weinsteins took the film with them after they left Miramax.

But as of now, the film does not have a release date. It is also not listed on The Weinstein Company‘s web site along with its other present and future films.

Producer Chris Moore tells Wired that the Weinsteins aren’t telling him anything, and that seems like really bad news. “Bob and Harvey could say they’re not focusing on these kinds of movies. They could say ‘we don’t get it, so go with another company.’ They’re saying nothing. That tells me that they’re going to sit on it and hope all of us will go away, and traditionally in Hollywood, we will.”

Director John Gulager isn’t pessimistic about the film’s future, but he wouldn’t want it to just be released on DVD. “We’re not out to make DVD movies. We want to make movie movies,” he said.
