New distributor, new release date - 09 Jul 2008

According to Variety the US distribution rights have changed hands. Warner Bros is no longer the right holder, but now Sony Pictures Entertainment is instead. In case you're wondering what Warner Bros had to do with the film, well their acquisition of New Line Cinema last February gave them the distribution rights.

Sources say that the producers of the film insisted on a November release, but Warner wasn't very happy with that since they're releasing it's sixth Harry Potter film in the same month.

With Sony the new release date has been set to the 20th of November 2009. The game's release date has been changed to this date as well. Note that Variety falsely notes Ilion as the game's developer, this has to be Pyro Studios instead.
