Following their announcement of a February 12th 2016 release date for a “Deadpool” movie this morning, 20th Century Fox has done some further shuffling around of its release schedule.
The big news? The film adaptation of the highly successful “Assassin’s Creed” video game series has been taken off the schedule. Originally slated for August 7th 2015, it has been pulled from the calendar completely.
The reason for the delay is due to various issues, from script re-writes to scheduling issues involving the actors including Michael Fassbender who plays dual roles.
The other news is that Josh Trank’s “The Fantastic Four” reboot has been pushed back several weeks and will take over the ‘Creed’ slot. Originally slated for June 19th next year, it will now open August 7th – taking the same early August weekend slot which Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” has found great success in this year.
Fox has also announced a June 19th 2015 release date for “Paper Towns,” a film adaptation of a novel by “The Fault in Our Stars” author John Green.
