Masterminds movie, starring Kristin Wiig and Zach Galifianakis, has release date pulled

Relativity Media has yanked the Kristin Wiig-Zach Galifianakis heist comedy Masterminds from its scheduled October release date.

The studio, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last month, says it still plans to release the film sometime this year.

“Relativity Studios has moved Masterminds from its scheduled Oct. 9 release date, and we expect to announce a new 2015 release date shortly,” the company said in a statement to EW.

The film was originally set to open this month, but was pushed to Oct. 9 at the beginning of July. 

Masterminds is based on a real-life 1997 bank robbery and features Galifianakis as an armored-vehicle driver who leads a boring life — until Wiig’s character persuades him to get in on her heist. It also stars Owen Wilson, Ken Marino, and Jason Sudeikis.
