Today’s release date shuffle includes one new scheduling and one delay:

  • The GiverPhillip Noyce’s adaptation of Lois Lowry’s award-winning novel starring Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Brenton Thwaites and Alexander Skarsgard will open August 15, 2014.
  • Grace of MonacoOlivier Dahan’s biopic of Grace Kelly, starring Nicole Kidman, has been pushed out of this year’s major awards contention and will open in the spring of 2014.

Hit the jump for more.

THR reports that the-giverThe Giver will open in mid-August of 2014.  The Weinstein Co. and Walden Media film hopes to repeat the success of the $100 million-plus earner, The Butler, which opened August 16th.  The dystopian story of The Giver takes place in a society devoid of any pain or strife, but also lacking any emotional dynamics.  “Thwaites plays a young boy who is selected for his life service as the Receiver of Memories and works with The Giver (Bridges), an old man who teaches the boy to use his unique gifts of the senses. Streep will play the society’s Chief Elder, an authoritative and antagonistic woman who assigns the young their tasks.”

THR also reports that Grace of Monaco, which was originally intended to open in an awards-qualifying limited release starting November 27th, will now be positioned as more of a commercial entry set to open in the spring of next year.  The report also cites a need for more time to complete the film as a reason for the delay.  Grace of Monaco, which also stars Tim RothPaz VegaParker PoseyFrank Langella and Derek Jacobi, centers on Kelly’s involvement in “a political dispute between Monaco’s Prince Rainier III and France’s Charles De Gaulle, and a looming French invasion of Monaco in the early 1960.”
