Warner Bros. Discovery just canceled the release of another nearly finished film.
Warner Bros. Discovery, the global production, distribution, and broadcasting company, recently announced that it has canceled the release of yet another nearly-finished film. This news came on the heels of a similar announcement for another film, which was also nearly complete.
The film that was canceled this time around is an untitled drama set to star Emma Stone and Olivia Colman. Warner Bros. reportedly decided to scrap the movie in favor of other projects in their pipeline, which they feel have higher commercial potential.
This is not the first time Warner Bros. Discovery has canceled a nearly completed film. In fact, the company has canned several movies in the last few years. These include a horror film directed by David Fincher and a sci-fi film set to star Jake Gyllenhaal.
Of course, it is not uncommon for studios to scrap films or push back their release dates. More often than not, these projects are canceled or delayed due to a variety of reasons — from budget issues to creative differences. Warner Bros. has long been one of the most prolific studios in the business, and their decision to scrap a nearly finished movie shows that they are willing to take risks in order to remain competitive in the industry.
Despite the fact that Warner Bros. has taken some drastic measures to prevent their films from being released, the studio also has a few promising upcoming films. These include a sequel to The Witch, as well as a remake of The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle starring Robert Downey Jr.
Overall, the news of Warner Bros. deciding to scrap a nearly finished film is a bit disappointing and shows that even the biggest Hollywood studios are not immune to the troubles of the film industry. However, the studio’s upcoming projects look promising and it is safe to say that fans can still look forward to some exciting films from Warner Bros. Discovery in the near future.
