Crisis Averted: Martin Scorsese's 'Wolf Of Wall Street' Likely To Make 2013 Release After All

A couple weeks back, things looked a bit uncertain for Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street." Reports surfaced that the filmmaker had only just put together his initial rough cut, and there was still a lot of work to be done if he was to make the previously planned November 15th release date. And things were so up in the air, ideas were floated to possibly move the movie to early 2014 instead, with Paramount eyeing a similar date to "Shutter Island," one of the director's biggest box office hits. But audiences, fans and awards season bookies can now start breathing a bit easier as it looks like 'Wolf' will still bite this year.

A couple weeks back, things looked a bit uncertain for Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street." Reports surfaced that the filmmaker had only just put together his initial rough cut, and there was still a lot of work to be done if he was to make the previously planned November 15th release date. And things were so up in the air, ideas were floated to possibly move the movie to early 2014 instead, with Paramount eyeing a similar date to "Shutter Island," one of the director's biggest box office hits. But audiences, fans and awards season bookies can now start breathing a bit easier as it looks like 'Wolf' will still bite this year.

Showbiz 411 is reporting that Scorsese and longtime editor Thelma Schoonmaker are now pressing forward to meet a November 25th deadline to deliver the movie for a couple of reasons. First is so that Paramount can market the movie and have it in theaters by the end of the year, and secondly, Scorsese is the jury president at the Marrakesh Film Festival in December. Essentially, 'Wolf' has to be finished before he leaves.

However, if 'Wolf' does arrive in December, Paramount may push another movie. THR reveals that the studio wants to drop Scorsese's picture on Christmas Day— the slot currently occupied by "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit"—and if they move forward with those plans, the Chris Pine-starring flick may be shifted to a January 17th release date instead.

So, things are still in flux to a certain degree, but with a new trailer for "The Wolf of Wall Street" already cut, we'd wager more formal confirmation from Paramount is just around the corner.
