Paramount Pictures has updated its release schedule today and made some changes to a few big projects. First up, the studio has set a release date for the A Quiet Place sequel, which is coming to theaters on May 15, 2020. The other film scheduled for that date is Warner Bros. Pictures’ Scooby, and Godzilla vs. Kong had already been set for May 20, 2020.
John Krasinski, who wrote, directed and starred in the first film, is writing the A Quiet Place sequel, with Platinum Dunes producing. A Quiet Place grossed an impressive $332.6 million earlier this year on a budget of just $17 million. The film also stars Krasinski’s real-life wife Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe, and Millicent Simmonds. In the modern horror thriller, a family of four must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten their survival.
Fans who were hoping to see Tom Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick on July 12, 2019 will have to wait a lot longer, as the studio has pushed back the release date for the sequel to June 26, 2020. Warner Bros. Pictures had In the Heights on that date as well. Co-starring in the Top Gun sequel are Val Kilmer, Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Glen Powell, Ed Harris, Jon Hamm, Lewis Pullman, Thomasin McKenzie, Charles Parnell, Jay Ellis, Bashir Salahuddin, Danny Ramirez, and Monica Barbaro.
Cruise is reteaming with his Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski for the Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions film, which will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Cruise, and Skydance’s David Ellison. The script was written by Peter Craig, Justin Marks and Eric Warren Singer.
As far as Paramount’s 2019 releases, Sonic the Hedgehog has been moved up from November 15 to November 8, 2019, while the new Terminator movie was moved up from November 22 to November 15, 2019. This could be in response to the recent news that Bond 25 may be moved back to 2020, but we’re not sure.
Ben Schwartz will voice Sonic the Hedgehog in the adaptation of the SEGA video game series. James Marsden, Tika Sumpter and Jim Carrey will also star. Planned for a worldwide release showcasing both live-action and CG animation elements, the feature film will be the first time Sonic has been adapted for the big screen. Jeff Fowler is directing from a script by Josh Miller. Producing is Neal H. Moritz (Fast & Furious films) and Tim Miller (Deadpool) is executive producing.
The new Terminator movie has both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton returning to their iconic roles as The Terminator and Sarah Connor from the first two films. Also starring are Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta. Directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool), the film is produced by James Cameron and David Ellison.
