Open Road Films has set Sept. 28 for the release of police drama "End of Watch" starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Peña, Anna Kendrick, Frank Grillo and America Ferrera. "Watch" written and directed by David Ayer. It employs footage from handheld cameras of police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras and citizens. Pic's produced by Ayer's Crave Films, John Lesher under his Le Grisbi Productions, and Nigel Sinclair and Matt Jackson of Exclusive Media who also financed the film, in association with Emmett/Furla Films. Exclusive Media holds worldwide distribution rights.
"End of Watch" will open against Warner's Clint Eastwood baseball drama "Trouble with the Curve," Fox's drama "Won't Back Down," starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis," and a pair of entries from Sony -- the animated "Hotel Transylvania" and sci-fier "Looper."But, if you're fortunate enough to be in the States that weekend, I think there's only one move to see, and it features Baldie Jake. Hopefully, we'll get news of some release dates in other parts of the world soon.
Thanks to IHJ for the pic!
