First, the FilmDistrict rom-com was set for release this past September. Then in June it was pushed to March 14. Now Walk Of Shame has a new opening date — April 25 — and will be released by Focus World, the alternative-distribution initiative of Focus Features. Elizabeth Banks stars as an aspiring reporter whose dreams of becoming a network news anchor are compromised when a one-night stand with a handsome stranger (James Marsden) leaves her stranded in downtown LA without a phone, car, ID or money — and eight hours to make it to a big job interview. Steve Brill wrote and directed the film, which now will open against Echo, the adventure pic that Relativity acquired from Disney in July, and Fox’s Cameron Diaz comedy The Other Woman.
