by | April 13, 2006 | Comments

If I told you there was a movie coming out that starred Sean Penn, Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins, Kate Winslet, and Patricia Clarkson, and was written/directed by the guy who did Searching for Bobby Fischer and Schindler’s List … you’d probably want to know when the flick’s coming out. The title is All the King’s Men and the release date is 9/22. Check out the press release from Sony…

Columbia Pictures’ All the King’s Men will be released nationally on September 22, 2006, it was announced today by Jeff Blake, Vice Chairman Sony Pictures Entertainment and Chairman, Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for the Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group.

Based on Robert Penn Warren‘s 1946 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, All the King’s Men is a classic of American literature that tells the story of an idealistic man of the people who soon becomes corrupted by success and caught between dreams of service and an insatiable lust for power.

With a screenplay written and directed by Steve Zaillian, who received an Academy Award® for his adaptation of Schindler’s List, All the King’s Men features an all-star cast including Oscar® winner Sean Penn, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, James Gandolfini, Mark Ruffalo, Patricia Clarkson and Academy Award® winner Anthony Hopkins.

A Columbia Pictures and Phoenix Pictures/VIP3A/VIP 4A Production in Association with Rising Star, All the King’s Men was produced by Mike Medavoy, Arnold W. Messer, Ken Lemberger and Steve Zaillian. The executive producers are Michael Hausman, David Thwaites, James Carville, Todd Phillips, Andreas Schmid, Andreas Grosch and Ryan Kavanaugh.

"Steve Zaillian has delivered a wonderful and provocative motion picture with a timeless story and fantastic performances. We couldn’t be more proud of the way ‘All the King’s Men’ turned out. Early fall will be a great time to release this film."

While a uniquely American story, the message of All the King’s Men is universal and very relevant today. It uses politics as a framework to delve into the more profound conflicts of human nature — sin, guilt and redemption. Warren’s novel was inspired by the career of Louisiana governor Huey P. Long and had a profound effect on contemporary literature, serving as a model for some of the best-selling political novels of the past half-century.

Variety reminds us that All the King’s Men was originally slated for a December ’05 release date.
