Hartnett's Rain Man Is Delayed
JOSH HARTNETT's West End debut in the stage adaptation of RAIN MAN has been delayed.
The Hollywood actor was due to begin his stint at the Apollo Theatre in London on Tuesday (02Sep08), starring in the new play based on the 1988 Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise film.
But the opening night has now been pushed back until the following week (beg08Sep08) because director Terry Johnson insists the play is not quite ready.
A spokesman says, "It is a new play so everyone wants it to be perfect. Terry wants to get to grips with everything before we open."
