This was supposed to come out 9/28 with another Diane Lane title, My New Gun, but it seems to have been pulled by all the major online retailers. Anyone know what happened to this release?

I saw the review, I just want to know if it is possible to buy this anywhere. I can't find any online retailers selling it, I've gone to several brick and mortar stores and they are also not carrying it. I guess it's an Ed Wood deal where the studio pulled the title at the last second, so it's possible that there might be some copies floating around.
