It was fun while it lasted. The Broadway play "Dead Accounts," starring Katie Holmes and Norbert Leo Butz, will close on Jan. 6, 2013 -- seven weeks ahead of schedule.
"I am extremely proud of this production and the cast. Theresa Rebeck and Jack O'Brien have created an inspiring and hilarious new play and we are all sad to see "Dead Accounts" end on Broadway," producer Jeffrey Finn tells Us Weekly in a statement. "I look forward to working with this remarkably talented cast and creative team again very soon."
Holmes, 34, received warm reviews for her portrayal of an Ohio woman whose secretive brother (Butz) returns home after a long absence. "Dead Accounts" began previews on Nov. 5 and opened Nov. 29 at the Music Box Theatre in New York City. It was originally scheduled to end Feb. 24, 2013.
It looks like 2012 was the year of the box-office apocalypse for “Heathers” star Christian Slater.
Slater racked up one of the biggest bombs ever by a major name when “Playback,” his indie horror thriller, made only $264 at the domestic box office this year.
The flick, in which Slater plays a dirty cop, was shown in only one theater, making a mere $252 in its opening weekend. It added the remaining $12 during the rest of the week it.
The 98-minute-long, R-rated movie was released for on-demand TV before it hit theaters for that one sad week in March.
The year’s top movie, “Marvel’s The Avengers,” made $623,357,646 more than Slater’s flick.
