Untitled Warners Projects
Warner Bros. Pictures has announced a November 13th 2015 release date for an untitled new comedy, and release dates of February 10th 2017 and February 9th 2018 for an untitled pair of projects from the Warner Animated Group.
Warner Bros. Pictures has also scheduled the sci-fi chase thriller “Midnight Special” for a November 25th 2015 release. “Take Shelter” helmer Jeff Nichols directs the project.
Live By Night
Delays on “Batman Vs. Superman” have reportedly been the main cause for Ben Affleck’s next directorial effort, “Live by Night” to be bumped by almost a year.
Affleck’s adaptation of the Dennis Lehane novel centers on a Boston petty thief who becomes the Gulf Coast’s most successful rumrunner. It was slated for Christmas 2015 but has now been moved and will open on October 7th 2016, ten months later.
