Indiewire‘s Anne Thompson reported yesterday that word ’round the Cannes campfire says that neither John Cameron Mitchell‘s Rabbit Hole nor Bruce Robinson‘s Rum Diary will be “done in time.” I hadn’t heard that. I’m sorry. That’s a shame.
I’m presuming, of course, that “not done in time” is a euphemism in the case of Rum Diary. Because it was shooting in Puerto Rico an entire year ago so…you know, c’mon. The film is apparently experiencing issues of one sort or another.
On the other hand Shoot Online.com posted a press release on 3.29 about Nina Saxon Design (which has composed Rum Diary‘s main-title sequence). It says that the film is “currently seeking distribution at the Cannes Film Festival.”
