ComingSoon.net brings word that Sony has pushed the Vin-Diesel led Bloodshot film back. The movie will now release on March 13, 2020, a few weeks after its initial February 21 release. The film will now face fewer competitors. This is two weeks before Mulan hits theaters so it should have plenty of time to make a killing at the box office.
It’s a slight delay, but it’s also one that may make the film’s release feel further away for fans who have eagerly awaited the first Valiant Comics adaptation.
The character was created by Kevin VanHook, Don Perlin, and Bob Layton and centers around dead soldier Ray Garrison’s resurrection as the nanite-infused, memoryless Bloodshot, a super-soldier created by Rising Spirit Technologies.
Founded in 1989 by Jim Shooter and Steven Massarsky, Valiant Comics has introduced the world to a host of popular characters, including Bloodshot, Rai, the Eternal Warrior, Quantum and Woody, and others. The company was eventually sold to Acclaim Entertainment but changed hands again when Acclaim filed for bankruptcy in 2004. As of 2018, Valiant now operates under DMG Entertainment.
Davel Wilson directed the film while Arrival scribe Eric Heisserer wrote the script.
