Lionsgate Has Given John Wick 4, Spiral, And More New Release Dates

After production was delayed, Lionsgate has announced new release dates for upcoming films.


The entertainment industry has been undergoing so massive scheduling shifts across the board as the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic continues to force production shutdowns--but thankfully, some studios are already looking ahead. Marvel Studios and Disney announced new dates for their upcoming slates, and now Lionsgate has assigned new premieres to several of their highly anticipated releases, according to THR.

John Wick 4, which was originally scheduled for May 21, 2021, has been pushed back a full year to May 27, 2022. The Saw franchise spin-off, Spiral, has been moved to May 21, 2021, after having been bumped from its original schedule of May this year.

Meanwhile, the Ryan Reynolds action-thriller The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard has been pushed to August 20, 2021. Supernatural thriller The Devil's Light has been moved to January 8, 2021, and Kristen Wiig comedy Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar is now slated for July 16, 2021.

Several movies will not be moved, however, like the Nicholas Cage feature The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent, which remains set for March 19, 2021, and Chaos Walking which will stay on January 22, 2021.
