Relativity has had a financial struggle that is becoming somewhat of a confusion the past few days. As the story develops, it has become self contradictory as well. Essentially, Relativity has been issued ten days to fix their financial woes, as lenders have started to flex their muscles with their authority over any business decision Relativity is due to make. This sounds like the bottom of the barrel, but it also feels like the final fight to get things moving.
Or so it seemed, before Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh and his representatives countered this headline shortly after. Both Kavanaugh and his reps have discredited this ten day mission and have gone on to say that they are nearing in on a deal with their lenders.
Supposing this is true, Relativity will finally (hopefully) be able to get their films underway. However, given the company’s track record, this feels more like a light affirmation to cloud the present problems and insist that all is okay. This is never a fun speculation to have, especially when it comes to the health of a number of films (The Crow, Hunter Killer, and, of course, Jane Got a Gun, to name a few).

Thank you to Belerofonte for the article. Let us hope that this Natalie Portman Western eventually picks up, but it is all but a ghost town waiting to be occupied at this point.
