Re­lease pushed back for James Gunn’s hor­ror film Bright­Burn

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - CITY | ENTERTAINMENT -

The re­lease date of James Gunn’s Bright­Burn has been pushed back by about six months. The hor­ror film, which was to hit the the­atres on Novem­ber 30 this year, is now sched­uled to re­lease on May 24, 2019. This is a good date for re­lease, though, be­ing at the start of the long Memo­rial Day week­end in the US.

Bright­Burn, pro­duced by Gunn un­der Sony Pic­tures, will face off against Dis­ney and Guy Ritchie’s live­ac­tion Aladdin; Warner Bros’ video game adap­ta­tion MineCraft; and Fox’s Stu­ber. The last film has a cast led by Dave Bautista, who plays Drax in the Guardians of the Gal­axy se­ries, di­rected by Gunn.

There has been a lot of mys­tery around Bright­Burn — it was set for a panel at the San Diego Comic-Con in July, but that was can­celled af­ter news broke that Dis­ney had fired Gunn as direc­tor of Guardians of the Gal­axy Vol. 3 over of­fen­sive tweets. Bright­Burn stars El­iz­a­beth Banks, and is helmed by David Yarovesky.

In­ci­den­tally, Gunn has been hired by Warner Bros and DC to write the next Sui­cide Squad film, with the pos­si­bil­ity of him di­rect­ing it, too, ac­cord­ing to a re­port by Dead­line.com.
