Maggie set for early 2015 release

– by ELI COLON –

One of the more offbeat movies that was poised to premiere at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival was “Maggie,” which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Abigail Breslin and Joely Richardson.

I say “was” because Lionsgate has now announced that it has acquired distribution of the film and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, will be pulling it out of TIFF. Instead of debuting at the festival, the studio has set “Maggie” to be released in early 2015. Whether this upsets you or not that it won’t be premiering at TIFF next month, the good news here is that it’ll have a theatrical release some time next year, and at that point, we’ll see if the move pays off for Lionsgate.
