Meryl Streep stars in Tom Rothman's summer flick “Ricki and the Flash,” dated for June 26 2015, while TriStar also opens an untitled Robert Zemeckis film based on Philippe Petit’s Memoir “To Reach the Clouds" on October 2, 2015.

Tom Rothman’s TriStar Productions has two films slated for Sony release next year. And they both look like movies I'd like to see. 

He's been developing "Ricki and the Flash" with writer Diablo Cody, director Jonathan Demme and producers Marc Platt and Mason Novick. The family comedy, starring Meryl Streep as a rock dreamer who reconnects with her family, will open on June 26, the same last weekend that worked so well for counterprogrammer "The Devil Wears Prada," released by Rothman's old studio, Twentieth Century Fox.

And on October 2, 2015--the weekend "Gravity" came out last year-- Sony will release writer-director Robert Zemeckis's untitled biopic based on Philippe Petit’s memoir “To Reach the Clouds." starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the tightrope walking daredevil, Ben Kingsley, Charlotte LeBon and James Badge Dale. 

Remember James Marsh's thrilling doc Oscar-winner "Man on Wire"? Petit is the daring Frenchman who walked between the World Trade Center Towers, a stunt no one will ever repeat. Zemeckis is going for spectacle with an immersive, photorealistic 3D film in IMAX 3D, which will place moviegoers in the middle of the action. 

Producers are Robert Zemeckis, Steve Starkey and Jack Rapke, with Jackie Levine and Cherylanne Martin executive producing.
