Just in time for Oscar season, 20th Century Studios has dated the Jeff Nichols written and directed, The Bikeriders, which follows the rise of a Midwestern motorcycle club through the lives of its members. The pic will open on Dec. 1 this year.
The Bikeriders is based on the Danny Lyon novel, and it’s produced by Sarah Green and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, and stars a murderer’s row of thespians including Tom Hardy, Boyd Holbrook, Michael Shannon, Austin Butler, Jodie Comer and Norman Reedus.
Following Amazon’s dating of Emerald Fennell’s Saltburn for Nov. 24, with a further expansion on Dec. 1, it’s another great sign by studios that the release calendar isn’t getting erased and capsized; many Oscar bait titles pushed further or to TBD due to the current SAG-AFTRA strike.
Also on Dec. 1 among specialty titles this year is NEON’s Anne Hathaway suspense feature, Eileen.
