Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake’s “Bad Teacher” shifted to summer
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It kind of makes sense that a movie titled “Bad Teacher” would come out in the summertime.
That’s what’s happening, now that Sony has shifted Jake Kasden’s black comedy “Bad Teacher” to its new release date, June 17, 2011.
“We love how this movie is shaping up, and our early test screenings confirm our confidence,” said Jeff Blake, chairman of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Sony Pictures. “We have had tremendous results with summer comedies in the past several years, from ‘Superbad’ and ‘Step Brothers’ to ‘Grown Ups’ and ‘The Other Guys.’ Summer audiences want movies that will make them laugh out loud and we think ‘Bad Teacher’ is the perfect choice for older teens and adults who are looking for a film that will make them look at the high school experience and do just that.”
More from the release:
The comedy, which centers on a hilariously foul-mouthed, bitter, and irreverent middle school teacher, stars Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, Lucy Punch, John Michael Higgins, and Jason Segel, and is directed by Jake Kasdan, written by Gene Stupnitsky & Lee Eisenberg, and produced by Mosaic’s Jimmy Miller and David Householter.
