Box Office Mojo (via The Playlist) is reporting that Gus Van Sant‘s upcoming film Restless has been given a 2011 release date by Sony. It’s kind of odd since Van Sant’s films usually get released in time for the Oscar run. The Playlist brings up that Sony may put all their campaigning into David Fincher‘s The Social Network, which Sony “loves”.
The drama stars Mia Wasikowska, Henry Hopper, Schuyler Fisk and Ryo Kase and it “tells the story of a 16-year-old-girl (Wasikowska) who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness and falls in love with an off-beat boy (Hopper) who likes to attend funerals and is suffering from the death of his family — which somehow produces the ghost of a young, Japanese kamikaze pilot from WWII (Kase).” The Playlist also read Jason Lew‘s script and said the “really liked it. [It's] funny, sad, weird, and in many ways all over the map with lots of interesting tones and tenors. Basically, it’s a Gus Van Sant movie.”
I really liked Paranoid Park and Milk was a solid film, but more so because of Sean Penn‘s performance. I’m definitely interested in seeing this.
