Paramount sets release dates for A Quiet Place, Action Point and George Clooney’s Suburbicon
The Paramount Pictures CinemaCon presentation is scheduled for tomorrow in Las Vegas, but today the studio announced release dates for three upcoming films, including George Clooney’s Suburbicon, Action Point and A Quiet Place.
Suburbicon will be directed by Clooney (Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Monuments Men). The film stars Matt Damon (The Bourne Identity, Saving Private Ryan), Josh Brolin (Hail, Caesar!, No Country For Old Men), Julianne Moore (The Big Lebowski, Crazy, Stupid, Love.) and Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Inside Llewyn Davis). The script was written by Joel and Ethan Coen (True Grit, O Brother, Where Art Thou?) and is the story of the quiet family town of Suburbicon, “where the best and worst of humanity is reflected through the deeds of seemingly ordinary people.” A break-in that ends in death brings out the ugly side of a seemingly perfect family. George Clooney’s Suburbicon will hit theaters on November 3, 2017.
The Johnny Knoxville (Jackass: The Movie) comedy Action Point (previous called Action Park) is set for March 23, 2018. Action Point is a new comedy feature from Paramount Pictures and Knoxville’s own Dickhouse Pictures. Scripted by Knoxville alongside Silicon Valley co-creators John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, Action Point will be also produced by Knoxville alongside Derek Freda and Billy Gerber. Likely inspired by Vernon, New Jersey’s infamous Action Park, Action Point imagines the disastrous consequences of a theme park run by Knoxville and his friends. Tim Kirkby, who has primarily worked on the small screen directing shows like Veep, Brockmire and Man Seeking Woman, will take the director’s chair on Action Park.
A Quiet Place is set for April 13, 2018. Husband and wife John Krasinski (13 Hours, The Office) and Emily Blunt (Looper, Sicario) will team up onscreen for the first time for Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes’ supernatural thriller A Quiet Place. Having previously helmed indie films Brief Interviews with Hideous Men and The Hollars, this will also mark Krasinski’s first big studio film as a director. Said to be a supernatural horror film in the vein The Purge and Ouija, A Quiet Place is set on a farm where a family has been terrorized by a ghostly being for some time.
