Sony Delaying Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Morbius And More To 2021

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

First, they came for the rabbit, and no one spoke up, because they were not a rabbit. But now Sony has decided to shift most of its scheduled releases to next year, a decision that impacts Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Morbius, Uncharted and more.

And the news continues to be bad for Peter Rabbit 2, which had already moved from late March (here, early April in the States) to August. It has now shifted once again to 15 January 2021.

Sony/Marvel comicbook movie Morbius, starring Jared Leto, had been set for 31 July, but will now debut on 19 March next year. Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which had been sitting in a 10 July slot, moves to 5 March. They might not be afraid of no ghosts, but shuttered cinemas and stay-at-home orders clearly intimidate them.

And if you thought this wouldn't impact the much-benighted Uncharted, then think again. Production had been shoved back on the film (currently set to star Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg) previously, and the movie (assuming it ever gets made) is venturing to 8 October, 2021. The coronavirus has also hit Tom Hanks more than just in his own health. Now seeking a date is his World War II drama Greyhound, which had been scheduled for 26 June.

One movie might actually benefit from the shuffle: Kevin Hart-starring drama Fatherhood had been given the January date that will now be occupied by Peter Rabbit 2. Which means that Fatherhood will move to 23 October this year.
