World War Z Sequel and Friday the 13th Reboot Removed From 2017 Release List

The World War Z Sequel and the Friday the 13th Reboot have just been removed from Paramount Pictures 2017 release list according to Deadline.

World War Z Two was originally scheduled to debut on June 9th opposite Universal’s The Mummy, but the film has been plagued by pre-production troubles with original director Juan Antonio Bayona exiting the project last year.  No replacement director has been named at this point, although David Fincher was mentioned as a potential “dream” choice last summer, but reports were probably more wishful thinking than a concrete possibility. The removal of WWZ 2  does work out for Universal, as The Mummy will open unopposed on June 9th, as the studio hopes to launch their very own “Classic Monsters” cinematic universe. read more
