Blockbuster has $1.46 billion in debt against $1.02 billion in assets according to a Chapter 11 petition filed today in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York.
The movie rental company has been on the verge of bankruptcy for some time now, due in large part to the strong competition it faces from the likes of Netflix and Redbox. Blockbuster has been forced to shutter many of its physical locations as a result of the financial pressures it faces.
"To preserve its three-decade long developed brand value, Blockbuster seeks a restructuring that permits a significant deleveraging of its business so that it can move forward at the digital clip at which its industry and competitors are currently running," said Jeffery Stegenga, the company's restructuring officer, in a court filing.
Jodie Foster and Kate Winslet will star alongside Christoph Waltz and Matt Dillon in Roman Polanski's film version of God of Carnage. The story follows two sets of parents who meet after their children are involved in a fight. Mayhem ensues. Carnage was originally a Broadway play that ran for 452 performances before winning the Tony for Best Play.
Polanski most recently directed The Ghost Writer with Ewan McGreggor and Pierce Brosnan. He is still not allowed to enter the United States due to legal troubles stemming from unlawful sex with a minor in 1977. Carnage will therefore be shot in France.
