Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron have been in a relationship for about 5 years now and while Zac has climbed the Hollywood ranks, Vanessa has just hung out.
She plays one of the lead's in the upcoming film Beastly, based on Alex Flinn's novel of the same name. Vanessa is very excited about the movie being released, hoping that maybe it will give her some more credibility as a serious actress. The film was set to be released on July 30th and Vanessa couldn't be more excited. That is until CBS Films decided to go with a bigger star's film instead.
Charlie St. Cloud will be released on July 30th instead, starring Zac Efron. CBS decided that Beastly could wait until march of 2011 to be released and chose to ride the Efron wave instead.
CBS Films issued this statement:
"There wasn't much left in the summer that we could move it to, we didn't want to go in fall, and the holidays are for four-quadrant movies. So we figured if we went to March, we'd have some school breaks happening around that time."
From prior experience I know that if the studio is hesitant about releasing your movie in the summer when all of your teenage fans would be most likely to see it, then it is not going to be your breakout role. Sorry V.
