Warners Plans Its 2019 Film Slate

In the wake of the studio crossing the $5 billion mark at the worldwide box office this year, and with next year’s slate pretty much locked, THR reports that Warner Bros. Pictures has begun to work out its 2019 schedule with plans for 17-20 film releases.

The films Warner Bros. already has in place for 2019 include: “The LEGO Movie 2” on February 8th, “Isn’t It Romantic” on February 14th, the “Godzilla” sequel on March 22nd, “Shazam” on April 5th, “Minecraft” on May 24th, “Shaft” on June 14th, “IT: Chapter 2” on September 6th, “The Goldfinch” on October 11th, “Wonder Woman 2” on November 1st, and “Margie Claus” on November 15th.

Also on the cards is Warners’ recent acquisition of the rights to The Weinstein Company’s “The Six Billion Dollar Man” film reboot of the iconic 1970s TV series. Damian Szifron is attached to pen and direct with Mark Wahlberg slated to star.

There’s also a new Clint Eastwood film, a sequel to “Lights Out,” the Michael B. Jordan led legal drama “Just Mercy,” Edward Norton’s feature adaptation of the Jonathan Lethem novel “Motherless Brooklyn,” and potentially the next James Bond film in the international markets should it win that contract.
