Endless Love Remake Sets Perfectly Fitting Release Date
ďAnd love, oh, love. Iíll be a fool for you, Iím sure. You know I donít mind. Oh, you know I donít mind. Cause you, you mean the world to me. Oh, I know. I know Iíve found in you my endless love.Ē Itís hard to believe that simplistic lyrics like that - from what has turned out to be a pretty timeless love song Ė werenít as insipid as the film that inspired it. Iím speaking of course about Franco Zeffirelliís 1981 film Endless Love, adapted from the more highly regarded 1979 novel by Scott Spencer.
And with the remake coming from Shana Feste (Country Strong), one has to wonder just how dripping-with-romance this film is going to be.Iím pretty sure its new release date is good indication. Deadline reports Universal has set February 14, 2014 for the filmís theatrical release (which is Valentineís Day for the loveless, soulless skeletons reading). Just how dedicated are they to the that special holiday weekend? It's the same date that is already occupied by two young adult novel adaptations - Wes Ballís The Maze Runner and Mark Watersí Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters. All will definitely split the female crowd that the movies are likely shooting to bring in. Sure, some guys will be interested, and others will use the movie date to their advantage, but these all appeal to the same demographic.
Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde will play the roles made notorious by Martin Hewitt and Brooke Shields in the remake, and they are joined by co-stars Robert Patrick, Bruce Greenwood, Rhys Wakefield, Dayo Okeniyi, Emma Rigy and Joely Richardson. Get ready for a heart-filled advertising campaign complete with Hallmark tie-ins.
