‘The Lovebirds’: Issa Rae-Kumail Nanjiani Paramount Comedy Moved Back By A Month

Paramount’s romantic comedy The Lovebirds is fleeing the nest. The film has been moved from its announced March 6 wide-release date to April 3.

Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani star as a couple on the brink of breaking up who get unintentionally embroiled in a bizarre murder mystery. As they get closer to clearing their names and solving the case, they need to figure out how they, and their relationship, can survive the night.

Co-stars include Kelly Murtaugh, Moses Storm and Betsy Borrego. Michael Showalter — who helmed The Big Sick, which Nanjiani co-wrote and starred in — directs from a script by Aaron Abrams, Brendan Gall and Martin Gero

Moving out of a slot against Disney/Pixar’s Onward, The Lovebirds instead will battle with Fox’s The New Mutants and an untitled DC pic from Warner Bros.

Paramount didn’t give a reason for the date change, but it comes hours after the studio announced three other schedule changes. The untitled sequel to A Quiet Place moved up from May 15 to March 20, and Playing with Fire jumped up from March 20 to November 8 — the slot Sonic the Hedgehog gave up earlier today.
