It’s been a long bumpy ride for “Masterminds,” generally for reasons that have nothing to do with the film.
The only glimmer of excitement is his flirtatious work crush Kelly Campbell (Kristen Wiig) who soon lures him into the scheme of a lifetime.
Along with a group of half-brained criminals led by Steve Chambers (Owen Wilson) and an absurdly faulted heist plan, David manages the impossible and makes off with $17 million in cash…only problem is he foolishly hands the money over to this wild group of double crossers and has been set up to take the fall.
With the bandits blowing the millions on lavish and ridiculous luxuries, they leave behind a glaring trail of evidence.
Now on the lam and in over his head, David must dodge the authorities, evade a hilarious hit man, Mike Mc Kinney (Jason Sudeikis), and try to turn the tables on the ones he trusted most.
Relativity Media has pulled the scheduled October release of the Kristen Wiig-Zach Galifianakis comedy “Masterminds” and moved it to an unspecified date in 2015.
The fate of releases like “Masterminds” and the Halle Berry thriller “Kidnap” have been up in the air since the studio filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on July 30.
“Relativity Studios has moved ‘Masterminds’ from its scheduled October 9 release date, and we expect to announce a new 2015 release date shortly,” the company said in a statement to The Wrap.
