Fox Tilts At Windmill

Twentieth Century Fox has postponed the release of the musical version of Moulin Rouge, directed by Baz Luhrmann, to early summer.

The film had been scheduled for release during the Christmas holiday period. "This is a complicated, unconventional movie," a Fox spokesman told today's (Thursday) Los Angeles Times, "so the most foolish thing we could do is to conventionalize and rush the post-production just to make the release date."
