August: Osage County Could Get Different Ending

Oscar Bait is Not Yet Ready for Take-Off

There's not much that's more important for film producer Harvey Weinstein than the annual award season. Next year, several of his films are prepared to play a role in the race for Oscars and Golden Globes. And while it's common practice that many highly budgeted Hollywood productions are constantly getting creative input from the studios, it's rather rare with for independent films. Weinstein is an exception here, because he often gets his will and demands adjustments.

The film adaptation of Tracey Lett's play August: Osage County stars Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep, among others, and is also affected bei Weinstein interference.

Slight spoilers

After the original ending (which orients itself towards the Pulitzer Price winning play) didn't do well with test audiences, it was changed and now ends on a more positive note.

This action was forced by Harvey Weinstein. Director John Wells isn't quite sure whether he's happy with that. But maybe not everything is set in stone just yet:

"I'm not sure I’m OK with doing it that way. I don't want to say there's anything wrong with the current ending, because there isn't. But it's something we’re still talking about. We don’t open for three months, and it’s possible you’ll see something different." (LA Times)

A limited theatrical release in the US is scheduled for December 25th, 2013.
