The Chicago Sun-Times reports that despite rumored feelings from Sony Pictures’ Screen Gems division that Madonna’s new film ‘Swept Away’ should have been released straight to video, the Material Girl’s clout overpowered those arguments and forced a traditional theatrical release.
Now, it’s said the movie is slated to hit theaters on the 11th of October.
If you ask me, if the movie does get released, it’s just for the money then, banking on Madonna’s name. Critics have panned the film so much which was why it was initially decided to head immediately to video. It’s that bad a movie.
