Sniper attacks delay Phone Booth release

Oct 17, 2002 by Ian Evans

20th Century Fox has delayed the release of Phone Booth, the Joel Schumacher flick that features a sleazy publicist (Colin Farrell) pinned down in a phone booth by sniper Kiefer Sutherland.

The film, which debuted back in September at the Toronto International Film Festival, was to open on November 15th, but Fox believes it would be inappropiate to release it so close to the ongoing sniper investigation in Washington, D.C.
