No one wanted to see “Father Stu” back at Easter time. No one wants to see it now.
The original R related release of the Mark Wahlberg-Mel Gibson dramedy made around $20 million. It went away quickly.
Sony thought they’d re-cut it and send it out for the holidays. Now the studio estimates that in wide release, “Father Stu Reborn” will make just $108K this weekend. Even cutting it a PG-13 edition didn’t help. Now the cursing comes from the audience instead of the screen.
#RIP Father Stu. If anyone’s contemplating a TV series, just forget it.
