So, at least we’ll get a chance to see Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig rob an armored car.
When Relativity Media went spiraling out of control last year, the fate of the heist comedy Masterminds starring Galifianakis and Wiig was unsure and the release date went from being pushed back a few months to being postponed indefinitely.
The dust is starting to settle after Relativity filed for Chapter 11, pending some objections from specific creditors, and their slate of films are getting back on track. Specifically, Masterminds is now set for a release on Sept. 30th, which is well over a year after it was initially supposed to come out.
At the very least, if everything goes according to plan, that means we get both Baskets and Masterminds from Galifianakis this year.
Release of “Masterminds” with Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig Postponed Indefinitely
Ironically enough, a movie about robbery is being put on hold because the company that’s releasing it has filed for bankruptcy.
You have might caught wind that Relativity Media, the company that was set to release the highly anticipated heist comedy Masterminds, has filed Chapter 11.
As a consequence, the film won’t be coming out in mid October as originally planned. A new release date hasn’t been announced, but one is supposedly coming for 2015.
Given the strokes of bad luck that has befallen Relativity, don’t be surprised if we have to wait until 2016 to see Galifianakis’ next film.

Instead of hitting theaters on Aug. 19th, look for Masterminds on Oct. 9th.
Relativity Media, the company releasing the heist comedy Masterminds, is working on mitigating their debt through an equity firm.
Maybe we’ll get to hear more about Galifianakis’ Baskets at FX in the meantime? Before the Oct. release, you’ll definitely be able to see Kristen Wiig in The Spoils Before Dying on IFC.
Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, and Owen Wilson Get Even More Ridiculous in New “Masterminds” Trailer
Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, and Owen Wilson are some of the luckiest inept thieves of all time, then hilarious have it out with each other as movie bank thieves do.

Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig Are Some Charming, Hapless Bank Robbers in “Masterminds” Trailer
More intriguing than a heist that involves stealing $17 million is the fact that Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig will be goofing around in the movie that’s based around the true life story of said heist.
Fans of 2001′s Bandits might dig this a lot, but we have a feeling that this will be a big Summer comedy hit with direction from Jared Hess and writing from a team including Jody Hill and Danny McBride..
Relativity Media To Do Indian Remakes of Their Film Properties Including “Masterminds” with Zach Galifianakis
China is not the only giant film market that American companies are trying to break into. India’s got a booming film business and Relativity Media is going to attempt to bridge their way into it with Indian remakes which will include the heist comedy Masterminds starring Zach Galifianakis and more.
Other comedies that could potentially get a similar remake are Take Me Home Tonight, Movie 43, Hector and the Search for Happiness, and Don Jon.
One can only wonder will look like with Indian stars, done in Indian languages, and done in the Bollywood arena where CGI effects go crazy and singing and dancing are still very popular.
