Reese Witherspoon Drama ‘The Good Lie’ Shifts to October Release

It’s Reese Witherspoon versus the Rapture after Warner Bros. pushed the debut of the Oscar-winning actress’ upcoming indie drama “The Good Lie” back a month.

The film, which centers on the bond between an American woman and a young refugee of the Sudanese Civil War, will premiere on Oct. 3, 2014. It will face off against “Left Behind,” the adaptation of the best-selling end times books with Nicolas Cage, and “Gone Girl,” David Fincher’s take on Gillian Flynn’s mystery novel with Ben Affleck.

It will open in limited release. “The Good Lie” was originally slated to debut on September 10, 2014, a date it had to itself. The Tom Hardy crime thriller “The Drop,” the thriller “No Good Deed” and the Tina Fey and Jason Bateman comedy “This is Where I Leave You” all open two days later.

Philippe Falardeau (“Monsieur Lazhar”) directs “The Good Lie” from Margaret Nagle’s screenplay.
