Harvey Weinstein, Weinstein Co. Push Back 'Fanboys' Release Date To 2009

'Fanboys'If you're one of the few remaining moviegoers out there who hasn't lost your patience with the oft-delayed film "Fanboys" -- which follows a group of "Star Wars" geeks who attempt to break into George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch to steal a copy of "The Phantom Menace" before the film's debut -- well, your wait just got a bit longer.

Slashfilm is reporting that The Weinstein Co. has decided to move the film to a February 6, 2009 release date -- pushed from it's most current scheduled release of late November (and even farther than the film's original tag-line, which stated "Fanboys" was "Coming to our galaxy in 2007"). According to Slashfilm, the decision was made as part of a company-wide plan to move all of their upcoming releases (with the exceptions of "The Reader" and "Zack and Miri Make a Porno") to '09.

Furthermore, Weinstein assures fans anxious to see the film that the release date shift has nothing to do with the rumored financial problems The Weinstein Co is currently dealing with, but rather that the move will hopefully give the film a bigger push as well as give more fans the opportunity to see it.

Anyone still out there that's looking forward to this film? Think it'll ever find its way to the multiplex? Talk about it in the comments.
