Sundance 2011 came and left without one of the highly-rumored titles 50/50, previously known as Live With It and I’m With Cancer, premiering. The Wrap now reports a release date from Summit Entertainment. The studio has slotted the drama/comedy from Jonathan Levine (The Wackness, All The Boys Love Mandy Lane) for September 30th.
Starring Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard and Anjelica Huston, the film “focuses on a young man’s struggles with cancer” and is based on a true story. The “bittersweet comedy” got acquired by Summit over a year ago.
In other release date news, Henry’s Crime starring Keanu Reeves, Vera Farmiga, and James Caan, will see a release April 8th, 2011. You can read my negative TIFF review and Dan Mecca’s more positive WFF review, and check out the trailer here.
Diego Luna‘s narrative directorial debut Abel and The Weinstein Company’s Shelter starring Julianne Moore have both been pulled from their upcoming spring release dates, with no new release set yet. [BOM]
