In this edition of Wire Buzz, fans will be making a fourth visit to the Continental; a True Lies TV show finds a home; and from what we can see, The Invisible Man has a release date.
After a franchise-high $57 million opening weekend, being the movie to take the domestic crown from Avengers: Endgame, John Wick Chapter: 3 - Parabellum helped score another victory for the series. As reported by Comingsoon.net, if you subscribed to the John Wick text notifications, you received this at roughly 3:20 PST:
That’s right. John Wick: Chapter 4 will hit theaters on May 21st, 2021. You have two years from tomorrow to prepare yourselves. Maybe they can take the original Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey title and call it John Wick Goes to Hell.
While fans are still debating about when the next Avatar will be released, another of James Cameron’s films is being brought into the Disney fold. Slashfilm is reporting that McG will be developing a True Lies TV show for Disney+.
True Lies starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as Harry Tasker, a secret agent who keeps his adventurous life a secret from his wife and daughter (Jamie Lee Curtis and Eliza Dushku). Even though True Lies may not fit the mold of other shows appearing on Disney+, it is one of Cameron’s more family-friendly films, so it does make sense. As of this writing, the series doesn’t have an official release date.
Deadline is reporting that Universal’s The Invisible Man will open in theaters on March 13, 2020. The film stars Elisabeth Moss and Storm Reid. Leigh Whannell will write and direct, with production beginning this July in Sydney, Australia.
The film was originally going to be part of Universal’s Dark Universe and star Johnny Depp. However, it will now be produced by Blumhouse, which was given creative freedom with the character. We have a plethora of jokes about whether you’ll be able to see the movie, but we decided to save them for closer to release.
