‘Soloist’ to be released April 24

Date change for DreamWorks, Paramount film

DreamWorks and Paramount have agreed to release fact-based Jamie Foxx-Robert Downey Jr. drama “The Soloist” on April 24 instead of March 13.

DreamWorks was caught off guard last month when Par pushed back the release of “The Soloist” from this year to March 13 at the 11th hour.

The Joe Wright-directed pic was originally to have opened Nov. 21.

In the April 24 slot, “Soloist” will open one week before the official start of the summer box office, which is primetime for moviegoing.

Based on a series of articles by Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Lopez, film tells the story of a homeless schizophrenic musician’s dream to play at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

After moving “The Soloist,” Par relocated Paul Rudd comedy “I Love You, Man” from Jan. 16 to March 20, according to Rentrak. Peter Jackson’s “The Lovely Bones” is still tentatively skedded to bow on March 13, but the DreamWorks/Par film is ultimately expected to open later in the year.
