About Ray, starring Elle Fanning, has release date delayed

Posted on

Elle Fanning’s transgender drama About Ray is being delayed from its scheduled Sept. 18 release date.

No new date has been set for The Weinstein Company project, but it’s expected to be released before the end of this year. Deadline was first to report the news.

About Ray stars Fanning as Ray, a transgender teen who comes out to his family. The film, which also stars Naomi Watts and Susan Sarandon, recently had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

“I definitely knew it would be a huge challenge to do — I definitely have never done anything like that before. I have a lot of transgender friends who go to my school and have made a transition over the summer,” Fanning told JD Heyman at the PEOPLE, InStyle and Entertainment Weekly’s photo studio in Toronto. “Reading this story and how current it seems. It’s not just about a transgender teen, it’s about family and how everyone is dealing with it. I just love Ray, and love the story.”
