Now that Columbia Pictures and Regency Enterprises have screened writer-director Cameron Crowe's still-untitled return to original filmmaking, they're scheduling it for May 29, 2015. That suggests that they did not consider the comedy --which stars Bradley Cooper as a military contractor who reconnects with former love Rachel McAdams when he returns to the US Space program in Hawaii-- to be fall awards material.

Now that Columbia Pictures and Regency Enterprises have screened writer-director Cameron Crowe's still-untitled return to original filmmaking, they're scheduling it for May 29, 2015. That suggests that they did not consider the comedy --which stars Bradley Cooper as a military contractor who reconnects with former love Rachel McAdams when he returns to the US Space program in Hawaii-- to be fall awards material. 

“Once we saw the film, we knew that it would make a perfect summer release," says Jeff Blake, Chairman, Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Sony Pictures. "The movie is Cameron at his best.”


Emma Stone plays Cooper's other love interest in the film, while Bill Murray plays an enigmatic billionaire who is launching a complex satellite system. Also starring are John Krasinski, Danny McBride, and Alec Baldwin. The film is produced by Crowe and Scott Rudin.  Exec producers are Ilona Herzberg, Eli Bush, and Ben Waisbren.
