Sony’s Columbia Pictures has confirmed to ComingSoon.net that the studio has set a release date of May 17, 2013 for director Roland Emmerich’s new sci-fi film Singularity.
The studio is keeping the storyline under wraps. Emmerich wrote the script for the film.
Emmerich has previously worked with Sony on such releases as Universal Soldier, Godzilla, The Patriot and 2012, the latter earning $769.7 million worldwide. The studio is also releasing the director’s next project, Anonymous, on October 28.
May 17, 2013 is the same date that Universal had planned on releasing The Dark Tower, though that project may be delayed.
