Searchlight Goes "Crazy" For Awards Season
0

With few prospects this year, Fox Searchlight has made a late awards move, as The Los Angeles Times is reporting the distributor has moved Scott Cooper's "Crazy Heart" up to a December 11th release in New York and Los Angeles. The film - a low-budget country music drama that stars Jeff Bridges as "a faded, booze-fueled singer named Bad Blake who's trying to get his career back on track" - was acquired by Searchlight in July, and originally was set for a Spring 2010 release. It also stars Maggie Gyllenhaal, Robert Duvall and Colin Farrell.
