Tenet…Again

The release of Christopher Nolan’s Tenet has become the saga of the summer. Whilst everything around it was rescheduling Tenet clung on to it’s mid-July release date. It was then delayed until late July, and then again to mid-August. Now Warner Bros have pulled it completely, and for now, at least, it is without a release date. WB says they will announce something soon and hinted that it may not have a global release. This opens up the possibility of a European and/or Asian release before North America depending on the pandemic.

Cast and Crew News

  • The Russo brothers will direct Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling in The Gray Man for Netflix. The stars will play rival assassins with Evans character hunting Gosling’s across the world. It’s an adaptation of a novel by Mark Greaney and described as being similar in tone to The Winter Soldier, but in a real-world setting. If the movie does well there is potential to launch a franchise.
