We’ve got a couple of release dates for you this afternoon. First up, Warner Bros. (via THR) has slated Clint Eastwood’s biopic J. Edgar for this October, while the studio’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock will open sometime in December. No specific dates are given, but the films are definitely poised for Oscar season. J. Edgar stars Leonardo DiCaprio as the titular Hoover, with Armie Hammer, Naomi Watts and Judi Dench co-starring.
Based on the Jonathan Safran Foer novel, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is directed by Stephen Daldry (The Reader) and tells the story of a 10-year-old boy who embarks on a journey to deal with the loss of his father in the 9/11 attacks and discover more about the lock-box key left behind by his father. Additionally, Variety reports that The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D will hit theaters October 5th, 2012, just three weeks before Halloween 3D opens. John Luessenhop (Takers) is in talks to helm the third-dimension version of Chainsaw.
