Mirroring the early year release for his last film, the spy thriller Haywire, Open Road Films has let us know when we’ll be able to swallow Steven Soderbergh‘s Bitter Pill. Deadline has reported the drama has just been set for a February 8th, 2013 release date, which is the same weekend the next Nicholas Sparks adaptation Safe Haven is set to land. It will also arrive a week before Fox’s big blockbuster A Good Day to Die Hard.
Scott Z. Burns‘ script centers on a young woman, Elizabeth Hawkins (Rooney Mara), who begins to have paranoid delusions upon the ingestion of a medication prescribed by her new psychiatrist (Jude Law). The two begin to have a sexual relationship, some bad things happen with her husband (Channing Tatum), and nobody goes home happy. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Vinessa Shaw are also part of the cast and following the first pics of Mara on set, Social Lite gives u our first glimpse at Law. Not much to go on here, but it looks to be at least a bit different than his gap-toothed Contagion character.
Steven Soderbergh‘s next film, Magic Mike, hits theaters June 29th and we can expect a trailer this month.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
