Lionsgate has officially decided to delay the release of its upcoming inspirational drama Ordinary Angels, starring Hilary Swank and Alan Ritchson. Originally scheduled for an October 13 theatrical release, the film has been pushed back to early next year and is now slated to arrive in theaters on February 23, 2024.
Its previous release date would have set up Ordinary Angels directly against tough competition in the form of the highly-anticipated Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour movie. This won’t be the only film that moved its October release date in order to give way for the upcoming concert movie. This includes Blumhouse’s The Exorcist: Believer and Lionsgate’s The Marsh King’s Daughter.
What to expect in Ordinary Angels?
“Based on a remarkable true story, Ordinary Angels centers on Sharon, a fierce but struggling hairdresser in small-town Kentucky who discovers a renewed sense of purpose when she meets Ed, a widower working hard to make ends meet for his two daughters,” reads the film’s official synopsis. “With his youngest daughter waiting for a liver transplant, Sharon sets her mind to helping the family and will move mountains to do it. What unfolds is the inspiring tale of faith, everyday miracles, and ordinary angels.”
The film is directed by Jon Gunn from a screenplay written by Meg Tilly and Kelly Fremon Craig. Joining Swank and Ritchson are Nancy Travis, Tamala Jones, Amy Acker, Drew Powell, Skywalker Hughes, and Emily Mitchell.
It is produced by Kingdom Story Company’s Kevin Downes, Jon Erwin, and Andrew Erwin, along with Roy Lee, ATO Pictures’ Dave Matthews, Stampede Ventures’ Jon Berg, Green Hummingbird Entertainment’s David Beal and Sarah Johnson, and Jonathan Dorfman.
