Columnists Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith report that Phone Booth, the new thriller from gay director Joel Schumacher, will now be released by Twentieth Century Fox in February. The film's original release date was pushed back because the film's sniper storyline too closely paralleled the real-life shootings in the Washington, D.C., area.
