The Weinstein Co. has moved back the U.S. release of “One Chance,” the biopic about about “Britain’s Got Talent” winner Paul Potts, to Aug. 29.

“One Chance” had originally been scheduled for release on Feb. 7 before it was moved back to March 14.

The film, directed by David Frankel and written by Justin Zackham, was screened in the Special Presentation section at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and released in October in the U.K., where it has grossed $5.8 million.

James Corden stars with Julie Walters, Mackenzie Crook, Colm Meaney, Jemima Rooper and Alexandra Roach. Producers are Mike Menchel, Brad Weston, Kris Thykier and Simon Cowell with Bob and Harvey Weinstein exec producing.

Scott Foundas gave the film a positive review at Toronto, calling it “a precision-engineered crowdpleaser if ever there was.”
