Did Universal Studios pick up “Nailed” for a 2013 Theatrical Release?


Well shit. According to IMDb, “Nailed” has been picked up by Universal Studios for a 2013 release.

No press release or official statement has happened, but the page has been in limbo since 2010 when they removed the release date and replaced it with “????.” It now shows a 2013 release, when just last week it had the unknown release date.

Nailed” stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Biel, Catherine Keener, James Marsden, and Kirstie Alley and was directed by Academy Award winner David O’Russell.

If you aren’t familiar with the films’ rocky past, here it is in a nutshell… Capitol Films promised financing and when David Bergstein was unable to provide the funds and pay the cast and crew, SAG had the film shut down.. several times throughout production. With one final scene to re-shoot, the scene where Jesse gets the nail lodged in her head, the film was shut down for good. After that, the nasty legal battles began that have permanently shelved the film. Not long after the legal battle was settled, Ron Tutor stepped in as producer. Since, K.Jam Media have also signed on as producers and have helped get the film back on it’s feet.

Rumors started flying that Jesse recently filmed her final scene for “Nailed,” but again, no official news had been released. Now it is showing the film will be released theatrically this year by Universal Studios. I really hope that this is true, it would be so great to finally see the film.
