Oh, phooey — it looks like Cindy Crawford won’t get a piece of the summer action after all. Fair Game, her steamy $30 million Joel Silver-produced debut, has been bumped from its scheduled August opening to Oct. 27. Why? ”It couldn’t be done by August,” claims Warner Bros. publicity chief Rob Friedman. ”We were on too tight a schedule…and we still wanted to do some pickup shots to clarify some scenes.” Playing a lawyer on the lam from assassins, Crawford had better be tough — Fair Game’s new fall slot pits her against such proven tough guys as John Travolta (Get Shorty) and Jean-Claude Van Damme (Sudden Death).
And the next actor to don a kilt for the big screen will be…Mel Gibson? Paramount will rerelease its Scottish saga Braveheart (which has raked in $58.9 million so far) on Sept. 15 in 800 to 1,000 theaters.
