Pic will bow Dec. 12, 2014
The big question now is whether the film will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, as has been rumored. Anderson’s “The Master” wasn’t ready for Cannes in 2012 and premiered at Venice instead.
Pic stars Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon and Josh Brolin, and the studio is eyeing an awards season run. Based on the Thomas Pynchon novel, the dark crime comedy also stars Owen Wilson and Benecio Del Toro.
The studio has also dated the “Entourage” movie for June 12, 2015, and “The Intern,” starring Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway, for Sept. 25, 2015.
“Entourage” is currently filming and is based on the HBO TV series. Nancy Meyers is on board to direct “The Intern.”
