Little Black Book: Revolution Studios announced today that Little Black Book, a little black comedy, will be released on August 6th, 2004, moving up from its original release date of October 15th, 2004. "Little Black Book" will be distributed by Columbia Pictures.

Little Black Book is directed by Nick Hurran and stars Brittany Murphy, Academy Award© winner Kathy Bates, Academy Award© winner Holly Hunter and Ron Livingston. The film is produced by Revolution Studios partner Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas ("Maid in Manhattan," "Mona Lisa Smile"), Deborah Schindler ("Maid in Manhattan," "Mona Lisa Smile," "How Stella Got Her Groove Back"), and Blue Star Pictures' William Sherak ("Darkness Falls") and Jason Shuman ("Darkness Falls"). The script is by Melissa Carter and Elisa Bell ("Vegas Vacation").

"The overwhelmingly positive response to recent test screenings knocked us all out and convinced us that the summer is the best place for 'Little Black Book' to be released," said Revolution Studios partner Tom Sherak. "This film features great performances by a magnificent cast. By bringing it to the broadest possible audience, it should have a long and successful run."

In "Little Black Book," Stacy Holt (Brittany Murphy), an associate producer for daytime talk show hostess Kippie Kann (Kathy Bates), is frustrated when her boyfriend Derek (Ron Livingston) refuses to discuss his past relationships. With the encouragement of her co-worker Barb (Holly Hunter), she delves into his Palm to learn about his ex-girlfriends. Using the show as a ruse and Barb as her guide, Stacy interviews and befriends them, only to discover that the past, in a few instances, is rather present. A modern day immorality tale of snooping in the electronic age, "Little Black Book" asks the question: have you ever been tempted to go where you shouldn't, and look inside his little black book?
