Shia LaBeouf’s ‘American Honey’ Gets September Release

A24 has set an awards-season release date of Sept. 30 for Shia LaBeouf’s road drama “American Honey.”

The movie, directed by Andrea Arnold from her own script, premiered at last month’s Cannes Film Festival and won the jury prize. LaBeouf, Riley Keough and newcomer Sasha Lane play hard-partying characters selling magazines in the Midwest amid a lifestyle of sex, intoxication and occasional law-breaking.

The film will open in New York and Los Angeles on Sept. 30, then expand nationwide.

“Even viewers who find this traveling circus of cheap thrills and cheaper booze wearying would be hard pressed to deny the iridescent vitality with which it has been put on screen,” Variety film critic Guy Lodge wrote in his review of “American Honey.”

Parts & Labor, Pulse Films and ManDown Pictures are the producers. The project was co-developed by Film 4 and jointly financed by Maven Pictures’ film fund, BFI and Film 4.

Arnold shot the entire film on location in the Midwest. The movie’s soundtrack features E-40, Kevin Gates, Fetty Wap and Bruce Springsteen.

A24 also announced it has set an Oct. 21 release date for “Moonlight,” based on the Tarell McCraney play “In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue.” The story centers on a young man who comes of age during the “War On Drugs” era in Miami and focuses on his quarter-life crisis, deteriorating home life and awakening sexuality.

The cast includes Naomie Harris, Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monáe, André Holland, Alex R. Hibbert, Jaden Piner, Ashton Sanders, Trevante Rhodes and Jharrel Jerome.
