According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. has moved the Mark Wahlberg film's opening date from May 31, 2019, to June 5, 2020, and the Godzilla sequel from March 22, 2019 to May 31 of the same year.
This news comes after Six Billion Dollar Man lost director Damian Szifron, who took over the project after the departure of Lone Survivor director Peter Berg in 2015.
Godzilla: King of Monsters wrapped filming in November 2017, with the films in Legendary Entertainment's Monsterverse culminating in a showdown between Godzilla and Kong.
Mark Wahlberg will play the titular Six Billion Dollar Man, an update on the original Six Million Dollar Man TV series that ran on ABC from 1973 to 1978. The classic series starred Lee Majors as Steve Austin, a NASA astronaut whose body is outfitted with six million dollars worth of bionic enhancements and replacements following a catastrophic crash. The enhancements give him a number of powers, including super strength, speed, vision and more. The series was popular enough to inspire a spin-off series called The Bionic Woman, which ran from 1976 to 1978.
Godzilla: King of Monsters is a production of Legendary Entertainment directed by Michael Dougherty and starring Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds and Zhang Ziyi.
