Jerry Lewis turned 90 on Wednesday with the world wished The Kid happy birthday.
Also being celebrated — a 2013 movie starring the King of Comedy is being readied for wide release, including Los Angeles for starters.
As deadline.com reported: “The producers of “Max Rose,” Lewis’ first film in awhile, have set a deal with Paladin to release the film theatrically in the U.S. It will kick off with an April 10 premiere at the Museum of Modern Art as the final piece of a MOMA exhibition.
“Paladin will launch ‘Max Rose’ in New York and Los Angeles in late August, and then branch out in the fall. The pic played in Cannes in 2013 as a work in progress and didn’t get great reviews. But it was the first film with Lewis since 1995’s ‘Funny Bones,’ and how many more chances are we going to get to toast the legend who starred in everything from Cinderfella to The King Of Comedy?”
From the toasts on Twitter:
