Although an exact date of filming is not known, it is planned for release on August 30, 2013.

Patrick Wilson was last seen in 'Alien' prequel 'Prometheus' and is also lined up for a starring role in 'The Conjuring', while Rose - who had a spectacular 2011 with 'X-Men: First Class' and 'Bridesmaids' - has recently completed roles in 'I Give It A Year' and 'The Internship'.
