Summit Pushes ‘Three Musketeers’ Back a Week to Oct. 21

The Milla Jovovich, Orlando Bloom movie had been set for a far-more-competitive Oct. 14 date

Summit Entertainment announced Wednesday that it's pushing the release of Paul W.S. Anderson's "The Three Musketeers" back one week to Oct. 21 from Oct. 14.

On Oct. 14, the adaptation would have had to face off against Fox comedy "The Big Year," as well as remakes of "Footloose" and "The Thing," from Paramount and Universal, respectively.

On Oct. 21, it will serve as counter-programming to Paramount's third "Paranormal Activity" film.

"Three Musketeers" stars Mila Jovovich, Logan Lerman, Orlando Bloom, Juno Temple, Luke Evans and Christoph Waltz.

The film was shot in Germany and is now in post-production.
