Weinstein Co. Films Pushed to 2009 (The Road, Fanboys, Crossing Over + More)

According to an LA Times Article the Weinstein is pushing the rest of their '08 film releases to 2009. The only exclusions are Zach and Miri Make a Porno, Extreme Movie, and The Reader (maybe). Cinematical explains:

That includes some oft-delayed titles like Killshot and Fanboys, as well as higher-profile stuff like Crossing Over (with Harrison Ford and Sean Penn) and Shanghai (with John Cusack). Ah yes, and the highly-anticipated adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Cormac McCarthy novel The Road.

Despite the fact that The Weinstein Co. is losing employees by the fistful, Harvey W. insists that the reasons for the delays are legit: Killshot he wants to hold for Mickey Rourke's The Wrestler; Fanboys is waiting for a Comcast promotion in January; Crossing Over deserves to enter a non-crowded marketplace; and Shanghai isn't even finished yet. Regarding The Road ... hmph, it never came up.

Fanboys has gotten delayed over and over again. Does anyone still want to see this movie?
