George Clooney releasing “Ides of March” in October


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It sounds like George Clooney’s political drama “The Ides of March” will be campaigning for something stronger than political office: The Oscars.

Sony has circled Oct. 14 as the release date for Clooney’s thriller, an adaptation of Beau Willimon’s play “Farragut North,” THR reports. That’s a shift from the studios original plan to open with a limited, awards-sensitive run in December, followed by a wide release on January 2012.

That could be a vote of confidence in “Ides,” as it will keep it in Oscar discussion in the post-Toronto, pre-Thanksgiving frame.

And why not? Clooney’s directorial efforts have had Oscar success (save for “Leatherheads”), and his “Ides” cast is powerful. In addition to Clooney, the film stars Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood.

But the original idea was to have “Ides” in theaters in time for the 2012 election cycle, as the plot follows a idealistic press secretary who must get down and dirty as he fights to get his candidate elected.
