Fox Pushes ‘Fantastic Four’ Release Back Three Months

Fantastic Four Reboot

Melissa McCarthy's 'Susan Cooper' set for May 22, 2015

20th Century Fox has moved Josh Trank‘s “Fantastic Four” reboot back three months from March 6, 2015 to June 19, 2015.

The project has not yet gone into production with the studio still testing for the lead roles. Tim Story directed the first two “Fantastic Four” movies, which grossed $620 million worldwide combined.

Fox also gave a prime slot to Melissa McCarthy’s spy spoof “Susan Cooper,” directed by Paul Feig, with a launch date of May 22, 2015. The studio also dated its untitled Vince Vaughn movie, directed by “Delivery Man” helmer Ken Scott, for Oct. 24, 2014.

Fox has also pushed back two other releases — Matthew Vaughn‘s “The Secret Service” will be released March 6, 2015, instead of November 11, 2014; and Michael Fassbender‘s “Assassin’s Creed” moving to Aug. 7, 2015 from June 19, 2015.
