“Downton Abbey” thesp Jessica Brown Findlay co-stars alongside William Hurt, Jennifer Connelly, Matt Bomer, Eva Marie Saint and Russell Crowe.

Goldsman is also producing, with Marc Platt, Michael Tadross and Tony Allard. “Winter’s Tale” was produced by the studio and Village Roadshow Pictures.

“Winter’s Tale” will go up against two other romance titles — Universal’s “Endless Love” and Sony/Screen Gems “About Last Night.” Also set for the date are Fox’s sci-fier “The Maze Runner,” Relativity’s thriller “Three Days to Kill” and The Weinstein Co.’s fantasy “Vampire Academy.”
