David Tennant: movie updates
The Decoy Bride to Open on IFC in Feb, Theaters in March
The Decoy Bride, what was once tipped as David Tennant’s first turn at the whole British romantic comedy thing has had a strange journey. It’s opened in a bunch of strange markets before opening in the UK. They don’t seem to be in a hurry to release it anywhere else.
One can only assume from this that the movie isn’t very good. We have no idea – there isn’t even a publicly available trailer.
That said – IFC Films is going to distribute the film in the US – it will be released first on On Demand services on February 3rd and then wide into theaters on March 9th 2012.
In the UK, the DVD is available to pre-order on Amazon, with a release date of 12th March 2012. The movie's official release date in the UK is Friday 9th March.
Actor David Tennant has been handed another chance to make a name for himself in Hollywood. The 40-year-old is to star in an upcoming movie in a leading role alongside A-lister Heather Graham. He will be hoping the film, Emotional Rescue, is more successful than the last project he was in. Although he himself received good reviews in vampire thriller Fright Night, the movie was a box office flop.
But this presents a second chance at cracking America for the Doctor Who actor, who recently married Georgia Moffet, who also starred in the BBC series.
Romantic comedy Emotional Rescue, set in New York and Connecticut, is about an award-winning journalist who finds love with Tennant’s character after the breakdown of a previous romance.
Shooting for the film is set to begin in the Big Apple in coming weeks.
Cast for the movie also includes Oscar winner Timothy Hutton and actress Alysia Reiner.
