It's usually not a good sign when a film's release date keeps getting changed, but there has been so much positive hype about Jamie Foxx's performance in "The Soloist" that WTF is hoping that's not the case.

According to Variety, Paramount and DreamWorks have agreed to push the release date back on this biopic from March 13 to April 24. Based on a series of columns by Steve Lopez of The Los Angeles Times, Foxx plays Nathaniel Ayers, a homeless musical prodigy who is also schizophrenic. His dream is to play the Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles. Robert Downey Jr. plays Lopez.

In the April 24 slot, "Soloist" will open one week before the official start of the summer box office, which is primetime for movie-going. The film was originally scheduled to open on Friday.
