The AFI Festival is searching a replacement for Sony Classics' "Foxcatcher," which had been set for a Nov. 8 world premiere at the Chinese Theater.
Sony Classics announced Thursday evening that it had pushed the release of the psychological drama, directed by Bennett Miller and starring Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum, to 2014 to give filmmakers more time to finish.
AFI announced three weeks ago that the North American premiere of Disney's "Saving Mr. Banks," starring Tom Hanks, would launch the AFI Fest on Nov. 7. "Inside Llewyn Davis" is the closing night film on Nov. 14.
