Where’d You Go, Bernadette release delayed five months
The Richard Linklater-directed film Where’d You Go, Bernadette was scheduled for an April release date, but has been pushed back until early August, per a report from Deadline. Rather than get lost in the superhero shuffle of summer movie season, the film will open against two horror flicks, one being Guillermo del Toro’s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark adaptation, plus Disney’s Artemis Fowl and Brain Banks, which is the only other drama on the slate that weekend.
Based on the novel by Maria Semple of the same name, Where’d You Go Bernadette follows Bernadette Fox (played by Cate Blanchett), an architect and family matriarch who becomes a recluse before going missing just prior to a family vacation. The film stars Cate Blanchett as the titular Bernadette, alongside Billy Crudup (Justice League, Spotlight), Kristen Wiig (Ghostbusters, Wonder Woman 1984), Laurence Fishburne (Black-ish, Last Flag Flying), Troian Bellisario (Pretty Little Liars), Judy Greer (Halloween) and newcomer Emma Nelson.
In addition to directing, Linklater co-wrote the screenplay with Holly Gent and Vince Palmo. Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson and Ginger Sledge will produce with Megan Ellison and Jillian Longnecker serving as executive producers.
Annapurna Pictures will now release Where’d You Go, Bernadette on August 9, 2019.
