Summer 2015 is going to get a little more breathing room. Universal will move Justin Lin‘s from August 14, 2015 to July 15, 2016. We reported a little over a month ago that Andrew Baldwin had come on board to write a new draft of the script. An early draft was handled by Anthony Peckham. Jeremy Renner is still on board to reprise his role as Aaron Cross. Whether the character will need his chems remains unknown.
Universal has now given the August 14, 2015 to the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton, which will compete at the box office against “Untitled Armored Car Project” starring Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson, and Kristen Wiig. The only competition against the new Bourne on July 15, 2016 is Ice Age 5. Hit the jump to check out the Straight Outta Compton cast photo featuring O’Shea Jackson Jr., Jason Mitchell, and Corey Hawkins, who star as Ice Cube, Eazy-E, and Dr. Dre, respectively.
