14 Mar 2014
"What If," a film starring Zoe Kazan and Daniel Radcliffe, will be released Aug. 1 in New York and Los Angeles. The film will have an expanded release the following two weekends.
The film, which was formerly known as "The F Word," was written by Elan Mastai and concerns Radcliffe and Kazan, who meet at a party and are attracted to each other. A romance is hindered by the fact he has recently ended a relationship and she has a boyfriend (Rafe Spall), so the two attempt to be friends.
Kazan's stage acting credits include Come Back, Little Sheba;The Seagull; and A Behanding in Spokane. Her playwriting credits include Absalom and We Live Here, and her film writing credits include "Ruby Sparks," in which she also starred, and "Revolutionary Road," "It’s Complicated," "The Exploding Girl" and the HBO miniseries "Olive Kitteridge."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
