Directed by Albert Hughes and starring Butler, Mickey Rourke and Adrien Brody, 'Motor City' will not start production on September 17 as it was reported earlier, reported Ace Showbiz. However, the picture is not canceled entirely.
"Faced with the realities of a very short post-production schedule and complicated visual and special effects, the producers have decided to push back production on Albert Hughes' Motor City," a spokesperson for the producers and financiers said.
"We are dedicated to delivering top-tier productions such as 2 Guns starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg which is currently in production and Peter Berg's Lone Survivor which is in pre-production.
The circumstances surrounding this project made it impossible to meet the firm March 31st delivery date without compromising the quality of the film," he added.
