End Of Watch On The Road

If there's one thing David Ayer knows, it's cops. As a writer and/or director he's been behind "Training Day," "Dark Blue," "S.W.A.T." and now the upcoming "End Of Watch," which is getting ready for a fall release.

Open Road, who recently picked up the film, have now stamped the picture with a September 28th release date. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Peña, Anna Kendrick, Frank Grillo and America Ferrera, the flick is a quasi-found footage look at police work, with video from police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras and citizens being utilized to help tell the tale. Okay, that's fine, but let's just hope Ayer has something new to say, because his voice has become very likely watered down. And while some might think the fall date means it's an Oscar play, we doubt it (though we expect this means it'll play TIFF). The date is pretty much the same frame they dropped "Killer Elite" in last year, and they'll be up against stiff competitoin with "Looper," "Trouble With The Curve" and the Maggie Gyllenhaal/Viola Davis drama "Won't Back Down" all opening the same day.

KStew fans may want to start looking at flight schedules, because while Walter Salles' "On The Road" is still waiting for a U.S. distributor, over the in the U.K. they've gone ahead and given it a release date. The highly anticipated Jack Kerouac adaptation will now hit theaters in Blighty on September 21st. That's not to say that after the film (presumably) premieres at Cannes it won't get snapped up stateside and put into theaters around the same time, but hey you never know, right? Certainly, with a cast featuring Kristen Stewart, Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, Amy Adams, Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen, Tom Sturridge, Danny Morgan, Alice Braga and Elisabeth Moss, it's going to be very, very attractive (and probably expensive) bait for more than a few major distributors. But before anyone breaks out a checkbook, buyers are going to want to wait to see how this one plays with audiences and critics at the fest first. [Variety/Telegraph]
