‘American’ gets new date

Pic will bow in Nov, along with 'Fence'

A couple of weeks after strong reviews at the Toronto Film Festival pushed Phillip Noyce’s “The Quiet American” off Miramax’s shelf and onto theater schedules, the company has shifted release dates for the pic and for another Noyce project, “Rabbit-Proof Fence.”

“American” won rave reviews at Toronto, particularly for Michael Caine’s work in the adaptation of Graham Greene’s novel about the early years of the Vietnam conflict. The pic’s critical position on U.S. meddling overseas left it in uncomfortable territory after last September’s terrorist attacks, which occurred the day after the pic’s first test screening. Post-Toronto, however, Miramax said the pic would appear in December, with “Fence” coming out Nov. 29.

Now, “American” will debut for a one-week Oscar-qualifying run in New York and Los Angeles on Nov. 29. “Fence” will appear on Nov. 8, also for a limited run. Miramax gave no explanation for the schedule changes..
