Happy 50th Birthday Viggo!
This Milestone Birthday Deserves a Special Wish!

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.

May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.

Execs to meet Thursday to discuss film's release

By Steven Zeitchik

Oct 15, 2008, 10:50 PM ET

The Viggo Mortensen dark thriller "The Road," a Dimension title from the Weinstein Co., originally was set for a Nov. 14 limited and Nov. 26 wide release. Now it quietly has been shifted until at least December -- and might be moved out of 2008 altogether.

Execs are scheduled to meet with "Road's" producers Thursday to discuss whether the movie will bow this year; the discussions come as Harvey Weinstein has pushed ahead with Stephen Daldry's "The Reader" for a Dec. 10 opening.

2929 Entertainment and Nick Wechsler Prods. are producing the film, based on Cormac McCarthy's post-apocalyptic tale about a man and his son wandering a bleak landscape.

Given another McCarthy novel resulted in the Oscar-winning "No Country for Old Men" and Mortensen was nominated last year for "Eastern Promises," "Road" has been mentioned as an awards contender.

But John Hillcoat's movie, shot this year mainly in Pennsylvania, is in post and decidedly not done, those familiar with the project said.

With the Weinstein Co. invested in "Reader" -- which the company is positioning as a commercial and awards play -- there might be less urgency to make "Road" an '08 title, though one observer noted: "There's no question Harvey wants this for 2008. But it may just not be feasible."
