Colin Trevorrow drama The Book of Henry delayed until 2017
The Book of Henry will be sitting on the shelf a bit longer than anticipated. Focus Features has pushed the release of the child-prodigy drama from Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow to next summer, a studio spokesperson confirmed to EW.
The film will now open June 16, 2017, in limited release, expanding in the weeks thereafter. Book of Henry was originally scheduled to debut next month, on Sept. 16.
Starring Naomi Watts, Jacob Tremblay, Jaeden Lieberher, and Maddie Ziegler, the movie centers on a single mother raising two boys, one of whom is a genius. Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed, the upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX) directed from an original script by novelist Gregg Hurwitz.
On its new date, Book of Henry is slated to open against Fox’s spy flick Kingsman: The Golden Circle and Pixar’s Cars 3.
Variety first reported the date change.
