Time to make new plans for Christmas Day, Trekkies — Paramount has Scrooged Star Trek XI all the way back to 2009.
The J.J. Abrams-directed franchise reboot will now come out May 8, 2009, part of a slew of schedule shifts announced by the studio on Thursday. Also getting the pushback treatment are Ben Stiller‘s Tropic Thunder (moving from July 11 to August 15 of this year), the David Fincher-directed Brad Pitt project The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (November 26 to December 19), Renée Zellweger‘s Case 39 (August 22 to April 10, 2009), and Eddie Murphy‘s NowhereLand (moving from September 26 all the way back to June 12, 2009).
Next year’s schedule also received a few adjustments. Paramount announced release dates for a few 2009 titles, including the Martin Scorsese/Leonardo DiCaprio project Shutter Island (October 2) and the untitled Wayans Brothers comedy (February 6).
