The release date for Elle Fanning’s animated film is moving from April 21 to Sept. 4, The Weinstein Company announced on Tuesday….
…“Leap!” is the latest TWC film produced in partnership with Nicolas Duval Adassovsky, Yann Zenou of Quad Productions, and Laurent Zeitoun of Main Journey, following their work together on the French film “The Intouchables.” Adassovsky, Zenou, and Zeitoun also produced the original French version of “Leap,” titled “Ballerina.”
Andre Rouleau and Valerie D’Auteuil also produce “Leap!”
“I can’t tell you about how much I love ‘Leap!’ and that’s why I’m moving it,” TWC Co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein said in a press release. “We have made the decision to move back to Labor Day and build the awareness and excitement within our audience. As always, I want to do what is best for the film, which I think is the best animated film I’ve ever made, and test audiences have agreed.”
The film premieres on Saturday at the Bentonville Film Festival.
