Streisand-Rogen pic to go wide on March 30, 2012
Paramount has dated Barbra Streisand-Seth Rogen road-trip comedy “My Mother’s Curse” for wide release on March 30, 2012.
As it stands, “My Mother’s Curse” has the date to itself, though that should change as the date approaches. Date gives the film a week-long lead up to the Easter holiday, which falls next year on April 8.
“My Mother’s Curse,” from SkyDance Prods., is directed by Anne Fletcher (“The Proposal”) from a script by Dan Fogelman, who also is exec producing. Pic tells the story of a mother-son duo who embark on a road trip so the inventor son can sell his latest invention.
Lorne Michaels, John Goldwyn and Eval Goldberg are producing. Along with Fogelman, Rogen, Streisand, David Ellison, Paul Schwake and Dana Goldberg exec produce.
Streisand’s most recent acting credit was Universal’s “Little Fockers.” Rogen last starred in “The Green Hornet,” from Sony, with U’s alien comedy “Paul” bowing on March 18.
In other news, Sony’s “Elysium,” from “District 9” helmer-scribe Neill Blomkamp, is slated to hit theaters on March 8, 2013. Pic, which is being developed by Media Rights Capital, stars Matt Damon and Jodie Foster as inhabitants of a future world.
