Joe Wright's The Soloist to be released in theaters November 21st

The Soloist: Official Movie Site is now up, but no contents there yet other than the movie's info and official release date for November 21st, 2008.

Also, from IMDB.com had the following info for...

The Soloist

Director: Joe Wright
Stars: Jamie Foxx, Robert Downey Jr., Catherine Keener, Tom Hollander (Full Cast)
Studio: DreamWorks SKG

The Plot: In Los Angeles, reporter Steve Lopez (Downey Jr.) befriends Nathaniel Ayers (Foxx), a brilliant but troubled musician and one-time Julliard student who currently lives on Skid Row. In a series of revealing articles, Lopez draws attention to Ayers's remarkable story, while Ayers still dreams of a grand performance at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

THE BUZZ: Director Joe Wright deftly moved between time periods in Atonement, and he'll undoubtedly employ some of this skill to tell Ayers's remarkable story (get some background here). Bank on top-notch performances from Foxx, Downey Jr., and Keener (who plays Steve Lopez's wife), as well as a gritty screenplay from Susannah Grant (Erin Brokovich). One of two fates await this one: multiple-Oscar glory or brilliantly miscalculated melodrama. We're hoping for the former.

THE SOLOIST
Nov. 21
Jamie Foxx, Robert Downey Jr.

A homeless music whiz (Foxx) in downtown L.A. gets a shot at realizing his concert hall dreams thanks to a weary journalist (Downey). There's a thin line between ''And the Oscar goes to...'' and ''The Hallmark Channel proudly presents...'' But if anyone can steer this clear of schmaltz, it's director Joe Wright (Atonement).
