The Alzheimer's disease drama Head Full of Honey, starring Nick Nolte, has landed a surprise fall release in select U.S. theaters, Warner Bros. announced Tuesday.

Til Schweiger's English-language remake of his hit 2014 German film will unfurl exclusively in New York and Los Angeles on Nov. 30, during the heart of awards season.

Head Full of Honey co-stars Matt Dillon, Eric Roberts, Emily Mortimer, Claire Forlani, Jacqueline Bisset and Schweiger.

The story revolves around a man (Nolte) suffering from Alzheimer's who goes on a road trip to Venice, Italy, with his granddaughter.

Dillon plays Nolte's son, an American-born husband and father living in England jointly raising his daughter with his estranged wife (Mortimer). When the grandfather and granddaughter embark on their adventure, his condition quickly deteriorates. Schweiger played the son in the original film, which grossed $90 million at the German box office.

Schweiger directed and produced Head Full of Honey in partnership with Warner Bros. 

The remake was originally titled Honey in the Head.
