Ryan Reynold’s ‘Selfless’ Moved Into 2015

Focus Features has moved the U.S. release of Ryan Reynolds‘ sci-fier “Selfless” five months to Feb. 27, 2015, where it’s now the first title on the date.

FilmDistrict, which has been absorbed into Focus, had set the date for the pic earlier this year for Sept. 26, 2014.

The film is about a terminally ill billionaire who buys a chance for eternal life through an experimental underground medical procedure that transfers his consciousness into the cadaver of a younger man.

The film is directed by Tarsem Singh. Endgame Entertainment and FilmDistrict co-financed “Selfless” after jointly acquiring the screenplay by Alex Pastor and David Pastor (“Carriers”).

Focus also announced that it will release the FilmDistrict title “That Awkward Moment,” starring Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller, on its previously announced Jan. 31 date.
