Renee Zellweger-Bradley Cooper film ‘Case 39’ gets dusted off for bow
HollywoodNews.com: After what appeared to be a shut case on the Paramount film “Case 39,” the studio will finally be releasing the film on October 1.
“Case 39,” directed by Christian Alvart, is a thriller that stars Renee Zellweger, Bradley Cooper and Ian McShane. In the film Zellweger plays a social worker who tends to a 10-year old girl who may not be as innocent as she looks. The film has already bowed in such countries as Mexico and Spain where it has grossed $15 million.
Paramount’s marketing for the film, per Variety, will be geared toward the Hispanic market after the film’s success in Latino territories. The Hispanic market is one of the fastest growing moviegoer segments.
“Case 39” will be released through the Paramount Vantage label which has been getting a resurrection this year after being dormant since its “There Will Be Blood” heyday. “Middle Men” also went out under the niche logo earlier this month.
“Case 39” was lensed in Vancouver in late 2006. It is reportedly the movie where Zellweger and Cooper first hooked up as a couple off the set. The film was originally scheduled to bow in February 2008 before being moved to April 2009.
