Paramount Pictures has confirmed to IGN that they will no longer release The Little Prince, which was set to open in theaters next Friday, March 18.
The studio didn't provide a reason for why they opted to drop the film so close to opening day.
The film's official site and trailer still bear the Paramount logo. The studio's publicity site still had assets for the movie available as of today, March 11. ...
So I'm guessing that this tested badly. Or the green eyeshade types didn't think it would work for Paramount.
Or else Sumner Redstone came out of his trance, stopped speaking in tongues and screamed: "I HATE it!! Get rid of it!! I thought the movie was going to be all CG, but this has stop motion in it!!""
I suppose we will find out, in due course, why the plug was pulled.
