Broken Hearts Gallery: Sony delays theatrical release to an indefinite date
Due to the sudden surge of new COVID-19 cases, the government’s July plan for the reopening of movie theaters has been upended. Because of this, scheduled movie releases for July and August are suffering another delay. According to Deadline, Sony Pictures’ upcoming romantic-comedy film Broken Hearts Gallery is one of the many films affected by this news as the studio pushes back its July 17 release date to an indefinite date and has temporarily removed it from their schedule. Despite this, the outlet’s sources also say that the studio is still committed to release the Selena Gomez-produced film in theaters and isn’t giving in for a digital release instead.
The Broken Hearts Gallery follows the always unique Lucy, a 20-something art gallery assistant living in New York City, who also happens to be an emotional hoarder. After she gets dumped by her latest boyfriend, Lucy is inspired to create The Broken Heart Gallery, a pop-up space for the items love has left behind. Word of the gallery spreads, encouraging a movement and a fresh start for all the romantics out there, including Lucy herself.
The film will be led by Geraldine Viswanathan (Blockers, Bad Education) and Dacre Montgomery (Power Rangers, Stranger Things). It will also feature Molly Gordon (Booksmart), Suki Waterhouse (Love Rosie), Utkarsh Ambudkar (Blindspotting), Phillipa Soo (Hamilton), Arturo Castro (The Informer), Bernadette Peters (Pennies from Heaven), Ego Nwodim (Saturday Night Live), and model Taylor Hill.
The Broken Hearts Gallery is written and directed by Natalie Krinsky. It is executive produced by Selena Gomez, Mandy Teefey, Jesse Shapira, Jeff Arkuss, Josh Clay Phillips, Mason Novick, and Michelle Knudsen.
