Hot on the heels of Paramount’s removing Transformers 6 from their schedule and moving another films around on it, we have another studio moving a highly-anticipated sci-fi adaptation back on their schedule.
Deadline reports that Warner Brothers is moving Six Billion Dollar Man film back a little over a year from May 31, 2019 to June 5, 2020. The reason given is due to director Damian Szifron removal from the project earlier this month. The shift allows Warners to take a little more time to find a new director and figure out whether to keep Szifron’s script or go in a new direction.
Into the empty spot, Warners will be sliding back Legendary’s Godzilla 2 from March 22, 2019 into Six Billion Dollar Man‘s old release date, giving Warner’s a replacement summer blockbuster.
Warners also announced that it will be moving its anticipated Crazy Rich Asians forward two days, from Friday, August 17th to Wednesday August 15th, to get a jump on a very busy, four film weekend.
The studio also announces that Doctor Sleep, the adaptation of Stephen King’s novel of the same name which was the sequel to his novel The Shining. That film will now be released on January 24, 2020.
