‘Wettest County’ release pushed back

Gangster drama moved from April 20 to Aug. 31

The Weinstein Co. has moved John Hillcoat’s gangster drama “Wettest County” back four months from April 20 to Aug. 31.

TWC announced the move Thursday. The April 20 date remains packed with Disney’s “Chimpanzee,” TWC’s “Scary Movie 5,” Warner’s “The Lucky One,” FilmDictrict’s “Lockout,” Focus’ “Seeking a Friend at the End of the World” and Relativity’s “House at the End of of the Street.”

Aug. 31 will see openings of CBS Films’ “7500” and Lionsgate’s “The Possession.”

“Wettest” stars Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Jessica Chastain. The film, based on the novel by Matt Bondurant and adapted by Nick Cave, centers on brother bootleggers (LaBeouf and Hardy) who take the law into their own hands during the Depression.

Lucy Fisher and Douglas Wick are producing alongside Michael Benaroya under his Benaroya Pictures banner and Megan Ellison via her Annapurna banner.
