STX has set coming-of-age comedy “The Edge of Seventeen” for a Nov. 18 release, seven weeks later than previously planned.
The studio made the announcement in the wake of the film, produced by James L. Brooks, being selected as the closing night gala for the Toronto International Film Festival.
Kyra Sedgwick, Woody Harrelson, Hailee Steinfeld, Blake Jenner, Haley Lu Richardson and Hayden Szeto star.
“James L. Brooks has mentored such extraordinary young filmmakers as Cameron Crowe and Wes Anderson,” said STX’s Kevin Grayson. “With Kelly Fremon Craig, he brings audiences a superbly talented new voice who vividly and authentically captures what it is like to grow up today. After being selected as the closing night film at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, we decided to move this very special film to take full advantage of the holiday corridor and to capitalize on the what we expect will be very strong word of mouth as the film screens this Fall.”
The film was previously scheduled to open on Sept. 30.
