First up is the sequel to Stephen King’s The Shining sequel titled Doctor Sleep, which has been moved up from January 24, 2020 to November 8, 2019. Midway and Sonic the Hedgehog are also scheduled to release on that date. Doctor Sleep was written and directed by Mike Flanagan (Gerald’s Game), whose The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix received rave reviews.
Doctor Sleep stars Ewan McGregor as the adult Danny Torrance, Rebecca Ferguson as Rose the Hat, Zahn McClarnon as Crow Daddy, Carl Lumbly as Dick Hallorann, Kyliegh Curran as Abra Stone, Bruce Greenwood as Dr. John Dalton, Alex Essoe as Wendy Torrance, Emily Alyn Lind as Snakebite Andi, Jocelin Donahue, Jacob Tremblay, and Zackary Momoh.
Next up, Robert Zemeckis’ The Witches adaptation has been set for October 16, 2020. Anne Hathaway will play the Grand High Witch in the film, based on the 1983 novel by Roald Dahl which was previously turned into a 1990 movie with Anjelica Huston playing the character. Paramount was also targeting Micronauts for that same release date.
Warner Bros. will open DC Super Pets in theaters on May 21, 2021, a date the film has to itself for now. Directed by Jared Stern and Sam Levine, the animated movie will feature the pets of DC’s superheroes, including Superman’s dog, Krypto, Batman’s dog, Ace the Bat-Hound, and Supergirl’s cat, Streaky.
Then the studio has also set release dates for two untitled event films. You can expect one on July 16, 2021 and another on October 1, 2021. We’ll have to wait and see what they are.
