What else do they have planed?
Sony is coming off a rather tough year in 2014. Their Spider-Man movie was a disappointment and the Sony hack caused them damage on many levels. Now with former Fox chairman Tom Rothman in charge of the studio, it has been placed in line with his vision. So, what is that vision exactly?
Well, we’ve got our first look at it with the release of their upcoming film schedule.
Let’s see the schedule.
Alright, here it is:
- Money Monster – 4/8/16
- The Shallows – 6/24/16
- Ghostbusters – 7/15/16
- Patient Zero – 9/2/16
- The Magnificent Seven – 9/23/16
- Underworld 5 – 10/21/16
- Passengers – 12/21/16
- Jumanji – 12/25/16
- The Dark Tower – 1/13/17
- Resident Evil 6 – 1/27/17
- Bad Boys 3 – 2/17/17
- Baby Driver – 3/17/17
- Barbie – 6/2/17
- Uncharted – 6/30/17
- The Lamb – 12/8/17
- Bad Boys 4 – 7/3/19
Wait, they’re remaking Jumanji?
It appears so. Just in time to be your Christmas present next year.
Are we sure it isn’t a sequel?
We actually don’t know much at this point, but everyone seems to believe it’ll be a remake.
Alright, what else is there?
There will be an Underworld 5 and it seems the final chapter in Paul W.S. Anderson’s Resident Evil Franchise is locked down. A big surprise is that they will be making not one, but two Bad Boys sequels.
Will Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, and Michael Bay be involved?
We’re sure they will in some capacity. Expect the two leads back and Michael Bay to most likely produce.
Is there anything that looks good?
Why, yes. I’m glad you asked. The Magnificent Seven film written by Nic Pizzolatto, directed by Antoine Fuqua, and starring Chris Pratt and Denzel Washington will probably be fantastic. While Baby Driver does seem kind of strange, we’ll watch just about anything Edgar Wright makes. We’re also very much looking forward to Passengers, which is based on a very beloved sci-fi spec script that’s been floating around Hollywood for some time.
Isn’t Passengers coming out just five days after Star Wars: Rogue One?
Yeah, we’re a little worried about that one. Passengers has a great change of being an amazing original film, but it has a high likelihood of getting crushed under the weight of the Star Wars juggernaut. Both films deserve to do well, so why not give them the room to do so?
What about Uncharted?
We’re not sure about that one. It seems to have gone through development hell for quite some time. At this point, no one is quite sure what movie we’ll be getting out of it. Will it be a serious big budget attempt to adapt the game or a lower budget affair like Resident Evil? We’re not sure.
And the Dark Tower?
We don’t know at this point, but it seems to be a different attempt at making it than the Ron Howard version. The first book is fantastic, so we’re hoping the film is too.
