“Angels,” “Woman,” “Sword” Set New Dates

Angels Woman Sword Set New Dates

Sony Pictures has delayed its reboot of the “Charlie’s Angels” franchise by two weeks, pushing the film back to a November 15th opening. Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska lead the cast of the Elizabeth Banks directed feature which also stars along with Djimon Hounsou, Noah Centineo, Sam Claflin, Nat Faxon and Patrick Stewart.

That’s not the only date news today as Roadside Attractions and Vertical Entertainment have acquired the Sienna Miller-led drama “American Woman” opening June 14th. Christina Hendricks, Aaron Paul and Amy Madigan also star while Jake Scott directs from a script by Brad Ingelsby.

The story is set in rural Pennsylvania where a woman’s life is changed forever when her teenage daughter mysteriously disappears. She is left to raise her young grandson and navigate the trials and tribulations for more than a decade until a long-awaited discovery of the truth is revealed.

Also, IFC Films has acquired North American rights to “Humpday” director Lynn Shelton’s Alabama-set comedy “Sword of Trust” which world premiered at SXSW Film Festival. The plan is for a debut later this year.

Jillian Bell and Michaela Watkins play friends who show up in Alabama to collect the inheritance of one of their deceased grandfathers. The only item they get? An antique sword that the woman’s grandfather believed to be proof that the South won the Civil War.

With the help of a pawn shop owner and his assistant (Marc Maron and Jon Bass), the pair set off to sell this rarefied item and go on a journey into the depths of conspiracy theory and Southern disillusionment.
