Daniel Radcliffe’s ‘The F Word’ Re-titled ‘What If,’ Set for Aug. 1 Release

CBS Films is no longer saying “The F Word,” re-titling the romantic comedy “What If” and setting it for an August release in the U.S.

“What If” will open in New York and Los Angeles on Aug. 1 and expand during the following two weekends.

CBS Films paid around $2.5 million for the U.S. rights to the project after its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September.

Directed by Michael Dowse (“Goon”), “The F Word” stars Daniel Radcliffe as a medical school dropout and romantic who meets an animator, played by Zoe Kazan. The relationship clicks, despite the fact that she is already living with her boyfriend (Rafe Spall).

Adam Driver, Mackenzie Davis, Megan Park and Oona Chaplin also star. Producers are David Gross, Jesse Shapira, Jeff Arkuss, Macdara Kelleher and Andre Rouleau.

Variety’s Justin Chang gave “The F Word” a strong review at Toronto, calling the lead performances “sparkling.”

“What If” will open against Disney’s “Guardians Of The Galaxy” and Universal’s James Brown biopic “Get On Up.”
