Columbia Pictures has moved up its comedy/drama, Great Hope Springs to August 10th, four months earlier than originally planned.

The film, from director David Frankel, stars Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carell features a script by Vanessa Taylor.

Many years of marriage have left Maeve (Streep) wanting to spice things up and reconnect with her husband. When she hears of a famed relationship guru (Carell) in the town of Great Hope Springs, she must persuade her skeptical husband (Jones) to get on a plane for an intense week of marriage and sex therapy. Getting there was hard enough… now shedding their bedroom hang ups, learning some new moves and rediscovering their youthful spark is when the real adventure begins.

Warner Bros., meanwhile, has set their Trouble with the Curve for September 28th. Starring Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams and Matthew Lillard, the Robert Lorenz film arrives from screenwriter Randy Brown and marks Eastwood’s first acting project since 2008’s Gran Torino. He’ll star as a baseball scout who is losing his vision with his age. He and his daughter (Adams) take a final road trip to Atlanta to check out a prospective talent.
