The long-awaited GEORGE AND THE DRAGON movie starring Patrick Swayze is still awaiting distribution - two years after being completed.

Tom Reeve's medieval tale of the legendary British knight SIR GEORGE, who fights a fire-breathing dragon to win the love of PRINCESS LUNNA, was finished in 2002, but due to financial problems has only been seen at Luxembourg's CINENYGMA FANTASY FESTIVAL in March (04).

A film source tells British newspaper the DAILY MAIL, "There were many problems during production and, at one stage, the producers ran out of money before they could create the computer-generated dragon. But the film still doesn't have a distributor, so who knows when it will be released."

The film stars James Purefoy as George and Piper Perabo as Princess Lunna, as well as Swayze, Michael Clarke Duncan and BILL TREACHER.
