Sony shifts ‘Restless’ release

Van Sant drama was in a crowded field

With less than two months before its theatrical release, Sony has removed Gus Van Sant-helmed “Restless” from the calendar.

The Columbia Pictures title was originally skedded to bow Jan. 28, and while Sony has not re-skedded, the studio said it still plans to release the film later next year.

Moving “Restless” to later in the year could position the film for potential festival play, as well as provide a more visible B.O. play period. Sony had begun only limited marketing for the film, including an initial trailer and artwork.

“Restless,” starring Mia Wasikowska and Henry Hopper, centers on a terminally ill teenage girl who falls for a boy who likes attending funerals. Pic was budgeted at an estimated $8 million.

The film exits what would have been a busy frame for January, with two wide releases — Warner Bros.’ exorcism pic “The Rite” and CBS Films’ “The Mechanic” — and a limited release of Lions-gate’s femme-targeted “From Prada to Nada.”
