Weinstein delays 'Revolt' release

September 18, 2009 |  8:30 am


The Weinstein Company (TWC) announced on Thursday that it would move the release date of "Youth in Revolt" from Oct. 30 to Jan. 15. According to a Dimension rep, the decision to reschedule "Revolt," directed by Miguel Arteta and based on the popular novel by C.D. Payne, was based on the positive response the film received at the Toronto International Film Festival, where TWC purchased the film.

"Revolt" is the second Weinstein pic to vacate its October release date -- "The Road" was moved to Nov. 25 to vie for Oscar contention alongside Rob Marshall's adaptation of "Nine."
