Well, we got used to it now. Sony Pictures pushed back the upcoming action thriller Bullet Train, starring Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock, Zazie Beetz, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, etc.
David Leitch, director of Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2, and Hobbs & Shaw, was hired by Sony in June 2020 to direct Bullet Train – adaptation of Kōtarō Isaka‘s novel Maria Beetle, which was published internationally as Bullet Train.
The movie will follow five different assassins on the speeding train who will realize their missions are actually interconnected. The movie was set to be released on April 8, 2022 (opening day of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore in the UK), but now it was pushed back to July 15, 2022.
The movie is starring a pretty good cast that includes: Brad Pitt, Zazie Beetz, Sandra Bullock, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Shannon, Brian Tyree Henry, Joey King, Andrew Koji, Bad Bunny, Hiroyuki Sanada, Logan Lerman, and Karen Fukuhara.
Sony also delayed one more movie – Where the Crawdads Sing – which was set to premiere on June 24, 2022, but now it’s been moved to July 22, 2022. The movie is based on Delia Owens‘ bestselling novel, and it’s starring Daisy Edgar-Jones, Harris Dickinson, and David Strathairn.
David Leitch is an action movie director who was uncredited co-director of John Wick, as well as Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2, and Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw. Leitch previously worked with Zazie Beetz on Deadpool 2. Oscar-winning actor Brad Pitt is starring as Ladybug, self-proclaimed as the unluckiest assassin in the world, who got the mission to grab the suitcase on the train and get off of it on the next stop. What could possibly go wrong? Well, four other assassins who have the exact same mission.
Bullet Train will hit theaters on July 15, 2022.
