BBC News reports that The Hours, Stephen Daldry's much-anticipated screen adaptation of out author Michael Cunningham's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, has been been pulled from the Venice Film Festival due to delays in postproduction. This latest withdrawal is one of a series of setbacks for the film, which was originally scheduled to open theatrically in the United States in late 2001. Taking the place of The Hours at Venice will be gay director Todd Haynes's Far From Heaven, his first feature since 1998's Velvet Goldmine. Actress Julianne Moore, who had planned to attend the festival to promote The Hours, won't need to change her travel plans, as she also stars in Haynes's film.
