Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are finally talking about the mini drama their respective films' release dates caused. Vanessa's Beastly was originally scheduled for July 30, a date to which Zac's Charlie St. Cloud soon moved. Zac commented:
It was disappointing. It was hard. I actually had to break the news to her. I was like, 'I think we are moving on to your date.' ... She took it really well, but it's hard when that kind of stuff happens. We don't, as actors, have any control over it, so we'll see. I mean, hopefully it will work out for the best. Beastly is a great movie, and when it does come out, people are absolutely going to love it.
Well, since then, Beastly moved... all the way until March 18!! CBS Films claims that the new release date will help bring in more dinero without the competition from Zac's film and with the hype around Beastly costar Alex Pettifer's other film I Am Number Four, which opens in February. Vanessa elaborated:
I just didn't feel right about us having movies coming out on the same day. It's just not right[...] I just don't think it's fair to either of us. We're actually going to be doing some re-shoots and changing it up a bit, so hopefully we'll make it that much better.Reshoots? Good idea! That film needs all the help in can get!
