Fox Searchlight has dated Enough Said for a platform release September 20, just after the film has its world premiere as a special presentation at the Toronto Film Festival. The comedy written and directed by Nicole Holofcener stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Catherine Keener as well as James Gandolfini as Louis-Dreyfus’ love interest. Gandolfini died June 19 of a heart attack while traveling in Italy. The pic centers on Eve (Louis-Dreyfus), a divorced soon-to-be empty-nester wondering about her next act. Then she meets Marianne (Keener), the embodiment of her perfect self. Armed with a restored outlook on being middle-aged and single, Eva decides to take a chance on her new love interest Albert (Gandolfini), a sweet, funny and like-minded man — who also happens to be Marianne’s dreaded ex–husband. Toni Collette, Ben Falcone, Eve Hewson, Tavi Gevinson and Tracey Fairaway co-star, and Anthony Bregman produced.
Gandolfini had several TV projects in the works at the time of his death, including a re-team with The Sopranos home on the upcoming limited series Criminal Justice, on which network brass are still figuring out how to proceed without their star/exec producer. On the film side, Fox Searchlight also holds the Gandolfini-starrer Animal Rescue — the last movie he shot — a crime drama that also stars Noomi Rapace and Tom Hardy. No release date has been set for that one.
