‘Fantastic Four,’ ‘Assassin’s Creed’ and More Fox Films Shuffle Release Dates
Those looking to see some 'Fantastic Four' action on the big screen with 'Chronicle' director Josh Trank's upcoming reboot will have to wait a little bit longer. 20th Century Fox has shifted around its upcoming release slates, including those for 'Fantastic Four,' 'The Secret Service' and 'Assassin's Creed.'
Trank's 'Fantastic Four' will now open on June 19, 2015, which will also see Pixar's 'Inside Out' debut in theaters. Its original release date, March 6, 2015, is now occupied by Matthew Vaughn's 'The Secret Service,' which moved from its November 14, 2014. As for the 'Assassin's Creed' movie, we'll now have to wait later in 2015 to see Michael Fassbender tackle that classic video game role on August 7.
'The Secret Service' is already well into production with stars Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson, while the 'Fantastic Four' reboot has yet to announce any official cast members. Michael B. Jordan, Trank's 'Chronicle' star, has been rumored to become our new Human Torch for some time. Miles Teller of 'The Spectacular Now,' Kit Harington of 'Game of Thrones' and Saoirse Ronan of 'The Host' are also reportedly in the running for roles.
In addition to the new releases, Fox gave debuts to 'The Heat' director Paul Feig's female 007 comedy 'Susan Cooper,' starring Melissa McCarthy and Jason Statham (May 22, 2015), and Vince Vaughn's still untitled film (October 24, 2014).
