Foxcatcher gets November date

Written by Barbara Vancheri on .

Sony Pictures Classics will release “Foxcatcher” on Nov. 14.

The movie, starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo, will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May. It was filmed in Western Pennsylvania in 2012.

Bennett Miller (“Capote,” “Moneyball”) directs the movie about John du Pont, great-great-grandson of E.I. du Pont, the industrialist who founded the chemical company. In January 1996, he shot and killed David Schultz, a 1984 gold medal winner who came to live and train at the Foxcatcher National Training Center du Pont built on his 800-acre property in Newtown Square, Pa.

Carell plays the chemical fortune heir, Ruffalo is the slain wrestler and Tatum is his brother and a champion wrestler in his own right.
