Lionsgate has set a February 8th 2019 release date for the Liam Neeson-led action thriller “Hard Powder”. Hans Petter Moland helms the film in which Neeson plays a local snow plow operator recently named Citizen of the Year of his small Colorado ski town for keeping the roads open through the winter.
His quiet life with his wife (Laura Dern) abruptly spins out of control when their son is unjustly murdered by a local drug cartel. He sets out to find those responsible but inadvertently ignites a gang war that threatens to engulf the town.
As a result of the move, the studio has pushed back the Seth Rogen-Charlize Theron comedy “Flarsky” to June 7th. That Jonathan Levine-directed film centers on an unemployed journalist (Rogen), battered by his own misfortune and self-destructive ways, who endeavours to pursue his childhood crush and babysitter who now happens to be one of the most powerful and unattainable women on Earth (Theron).
Annapurna Pictures has locked down its Fall release slate starting with the Jacques Audiard-directed western “The Sisters Brothers” starring John C. Reilly, Joaquin Phoenix and Jake Gyllenhaal being set for September 21st. Then comes “Moonlight” director Barry Jenkins’ follow-up feature “If Beale Street Could Talk” on November 30th, Adam McKay’s still untitled Dick Cheney biopic film with Christian Bale on December 14th, and Karyn Kusama’s bikie tale “Destroyer” starring Nicole Kidman on Christmas Day.
