“Power Rangers” has been delayed from July 22, 2016 to Jan. 13, 2017, effectively moving from summer to a less-crowded frame.
Lionsgate confirmed that Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone will star in “La La Land,” a musical from Oscar-nominated “Whiplash” writer-director Damien Chazelle.
Jordan Horowitz of Gilbert Films, Fred Berger of Impostor Pictures and Marc Platt produced the film, which will open on July 15, 2016 via Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment.
In this modern take on the Hollywood musical, Sebastian (Gosling) and Mia (Stone) are drawn together by their common desire to do what they love. But as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.
Gosling and Stone aren’t the only high-profile pairing on Lionsgate’s slate, as Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg join forces in Nima Nourizadeh’s action comedy “American Ultra,” which will open in wide release on Aug. 21, 2015. The film co-stars Walton Goggins, Connie Britton, Bill Pullman, Topher Grace and Tony Hale.
Max Landis wrote the screenplay, which follows a stoner and his girlfriend as their sleepy, small-town existence is disrupted when his past comes back to haunt him in the form of a government operation set to wipe him out.
Lionsgate also shifted release date for Zac Efron and Robert De Niro’s comedy “Dirty Grandpa,” Alex Proyas’ epic “Gods of Egypt” and Ariel Vromen’s “Criminal.”
“Dirty Grandpa” has moved up from Aug. 12, 2016 to Feb. 26, 2016. “Criminal” has moved back from Aug. 21, 2015 to Jan. 22, 2016, and will be released by Summit, which will also release “Gods of Egypt” on April 8, 2016. The film had previously been slated for Feb. 12, 2016.
