The upcoming film Moving On is the latest project from Oscar nominee Paul Weitz, the writer and director of 2002’s About a Boy. The film is described as an “original comedy of humor and heart” and once again sees Weitz both holding the pen and standing behind the camera with an all-star cast that features Academy Award Winner Jane Fonda, Academy Award Nominee Lily Tomlin, Malcolm McDowell, and Richard Roundtree. The project will be released theatrically on March 17, 2023.
Having first premiered back in September at Toronto International Film Festival, Moving On tells the story of two estranged friends, played by Fonda and Tomlin who hatch a plan to get revenge on the widower (McDowell) of their recently deceased best friend. During this mission for vengeance, Fonda reunites with her former love (Roundtree) as both women attempt to make peace with their past and learn to treasure the value of a good friend.
Written and directed by Weitz, the film reunites Weitz and Tomlin, who worked together on the 2015 award-winning road trip comedy, Grandma.
