As the question of how long the coronavirus pandemic will affect the entertainment industry remains unanswered, Sony Pictures is not taking any chances. Sony pushed back its major tentpole movies —including Morbius, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the ever-cursed Uncharted, and the already-delayed Peter Rabbit 2 — to next year.
Variety reports that Sony has drastically pushed back its entire 2020 and 2021 slate amid concerns that the coronavirus pandemic won’t ease up by the time the summer movie season starts this year.
Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters sequel, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, has moved moved from July 10, 2020, to March 5, 2021, while Jared Let’s Spider-Man-adjacent comic book movie Morbius has been delayed from July 31, 2020 to March 19, 2021. The Tom Holland-led Uncharted is no stranger to delays, and this is just the latest pushback that suggests we’ll never see the video game adaptation, as the film goes from its March 5, 2021 slot to October 8, 2021. Meanwhile, Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, which was one of the first films to be delayed in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, has now been pushed back from August 7 to January 15, 2021. An untitled Sony/Marvel movie has also been delayed indefinitely from its original October 8, 2021 date.
Sony has moved virtually every one of its major titles out of 2020, with the exception of the Kevin Hart drama Fatherhood, which was actually pushed up to October 23, 2020. The Tom Hanks World War II drama Greyhound, which was set to open this June, has been delayed indefinitely.
This schedule reshuffling marks the biggest changes by a major studio since the coronavirus pandemic reached U.S. shores, shutting down businesses and shuttering movie theaters across the country. When lockdowns commenced, many in the entertainment industry hoped that the coronavirus pandemic could be curbed by the time the summer movie season commenced, but Sony’s release date delays suggests studios are starting to think otherwise. It’s only a matter of time before other studios follow suit and delay their major tentpole releases set for the summer, like Wonder Woman 1984 — which has already been postponed to August from its original June date — for 2021 releases.
Our holiday blockbuster season could look entirely different as well, with major films like Warner Bros.’ Dune possibly getting pushed to next year while the studio likely gives Christopher Nolan’s Tenet a November release. It’s all uncertain what the summer movie season will look like — if there even is a summer movie season — as the coronavirus crisis wears on.
Here is the full schedule of Sony’s release date changes:Greyhound – TBD from 6/12/2020 Fatherhood – 10/23/2020 from 1/15/2021 Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway –...
As the coronavirus pandemic continues, co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are revealing more of the alternate script pages for Zombieland that would have given the big cameo made famous by Bill Murray to a number of other movie stars.
Patrick Swayze was in the very first draft of the movie, but he never got offered the part since he was diagnosed with cancer around the time the movie would have started production. Then Sylvester Stallone had to pass due to scheduling, and Mark Hamill’s people just flat out said no read those pages here. And Zombieland just didn’t have enough money to lure Joe Pesci in. The offers didn’t stop there though, because Kevin Bacon and Jean-Claude Van Damme were each offered the cameo, and they both turned it down. Read the latest alternate Zombieland cameo script pages below.Kevin Bacon’s Alternate Zombieland Cameo

These script pages follow the same path as those of Patrick Swayze and Sylvester Stallone where Tallahassee had a lot of respect and love for their work, and then ended up being disappointed by them. However, in this case, it wasn’t about a bad movie that Kevin Bacon made. No, instead, Tallahassee ended up shunning Kevin Bacon because of his full frontal nude scene in Wild Things. Basically, “Kevin’s bacon” was so impressive that it embarrassed Tallahassee, and he never forgave the Footloose star.
Also, this is one of the versions of the cameo where the movie in the DVD player of Kevin Bacon’s home theater isn’t one of his good movies. It’s Hollow Man.
So why didn’t Kevin Bacon take the role? Actually, it wasn’t really his decision. The offer went out to Kevin Bacon but he never got sent the pages and it was his representatives that turned it down. Apparently Bacon reached out to Reese and Wernick after the movie came out, told them he loved the movie, and took them out to breakfast. That’s a class act right here.Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Alternate Zombieland Cameo

So far we’ve gotten to read several of the alternate cameos that were pitched for Zombieland before Bill Murray came aboard the project and gave us one of the best cameos in movie history. There was Patrick Swayze in the very first draft of the movie, which unfortunately never got offered to the actor before he was diagnosed with cancer. Then Sylvester Stallone had to pass due to scheduling, and Mark Hamill’s people just flat out said no read those pages here. Now we’ve come to one of the Goodfellas.
Joe Pesci was offered the big cameo in Zombieland. When the offer came through to his agent, co-writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese explained that it was “a small part.” That’s when Joe Pesci’s agent put a Hollywood spin on a common phrase in the industry by saying, “There are no small parts, only small money.” Apparently this part came with small money, so Joe Pesci passed. But now we get to read how the scene would have played out.Joe Pesci Zombieland Cameo
Here are the Zombieland script pages with Joe Pesci’s cameo, as released on Twitter by co-writer Rhett Reese:#gallery-2 #gallery-2 .gallery-item #gallery-2 img #gallery-2 .gallery-caption /* see gallery_shortcode in wp-includes/media.php */
The pages for what would have been Joe Pesci’s cameo in Zombieland again echo the style of Patrick Swayze’s original cameo, but there are merely references to Joe Pesci’s movies instead. The one big change comes in Tallahassee’s love for Pesci never waning in any capacity. In all the other versions of this scene, Tallahassee had a reason to lose his respect and love for Swazye, Stallone and Mark Hamill. But there’s none of that with Joe Pesci. Also, this draft represents the first time that the movie still in the DVD player is actually one of the actor’s bad movies: Gone Fishin’
Instead, what we do get, and I’m a little disappointed we didn’t get to see, is Woody Harrelson doing a Joe Pesci impression several times, including when he takes the baseball bat from Casino to Joe Pesci’s chin. That would have been something to see, even if it’s still nowhere near as good as what we got with Bill Murray.
Other alternate Zombieland cameos that we’re still waiting to see include Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Bacon, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Matthew McConnaughey and more, so stay tuned.
