Leaves of Grass Being Pushed Back for a Summer Release

Edward Norton, via his Twitter account, has reported that his film Leaves of Grass (directed by Tim Blake Nelson) is being pushed back. It was supposed to be released these week. Norton says:

“Very good news, the film has been picked up by a new company and will be given a much wider summer release. Details to come but we’re all really happy because now it will likely get to many more cities than just NY and Dallas. This happened very much due to great audience response and reviews and press out of SxSW. So huge thanks to everybody in Austin.”

In Leaves of Grass, Bill Kincaid, a college classics professor (Norton) is lured home from the Ivy League to the backwoods of Southeastern Oklahoma by his identical twin (also Norton), a hedonistic, pot- smoking career criminal. Kincaid finds that Plato and Marcus Aurelius have ill-prepared him for dealing with a gang of homicidal yokels.

There is presently no word on when this film will come to theaters
