Paramount Pushes ‘The Soloist’ and ‘Defiance’ to 2009

Paramount is rolling the dice with the Oscar chances of at least one of its films. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount has shifted its release date of The Soloist from its November 21 release date to March 13, 2009.

The move would negate the chances of award consideration for the film, which stars Robert Downey Jr. and Jamie Foxx. It wasn't said if the studio would grant the film a late-December Oscar-quaifying limited run as of yet. Trailers for the film have already been shown in theaters.

Defiance, however, will still be in the Oscar hunt. The studio has pushed its December 12 limited bow to December 31, with a wide release slated for January 16, 2009.

The Soloist was released April 24th, 2009.

Defiance was released January 16th, 2009.
