CBS Films Moves Up Robert De Niro-Michael Douglas Comedy ‘Last Vegas’

CBS Films Moves Up Robert De Niro-Michael Douglas Comedy 'Last Vegas'

Comedy, co-starring Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline, will debut on Nov. 1 rather than Dec. 20

CBS Films on Wednesday has moved up the release date for "Last Vegas," its comedy starring Michael Douglas and Robert De Niro, from Dec. 20 to Nov 1.

The move positions the film — about four old friends who decide to throw a Las Vegas bachelor party for the only one of them who has remained single – as counter-programming to Summit's young adult sci-fi film "Ender's Game."

Its original slot buried it in a busy date that included the Paramount comedy "Anchorman: The Legend Continues," as well as two dramas, Sony's "Monuments Men" and Disney's "Saving Mr Banks," and the Fox family adventure "Walking with Dinosaurs."

It's being produced by Laurence Mark  and Amy Baer. Good Universe's Nathan Kahane and Nicole Brown will executive produce. Matt Leonetti will co-produce.

Executive vice president of production Maria Faillace and creative executive Alex Ginno are overseeing the project for CBS Films.
