Universal pushes Bob Odenkirk’s Nobody, untitled M. Night Shyamalan theater
Universal is changing two more of its upcoming release calendar as it has announced that the Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) and Connie Nielsen (Wonder Woman)-led action-thriller Nobody has moved from its August 2020 release to February 26, 2021, and has pulled an untitled M. Night Shyamalan (Glass) thriller.
The August 14 release date was originally set to pit Nobody against fellow Nielsen starrer Wonder Woman 1984, but now the highly-anticipated DC Extended Universe sequel will only have to face off against Disney’s The One and Only Ivan, should schedules remain the same amidst the global pandemic. The Shyamalan thriller was originally set for the February 26 release, but with Nobody taking its place, it currently remains undated, as it was also still in pre-production before being shut down over health concerns.
Nobody, which hails from Hardcore Henry director Ilya Naishuller, follows a quiet suburban dad named Hutch – a typical nobody – who’s long-simmering rage suddenly erupts when two thieves break into his home. Propelled by this anger, Hutch journeys down a brutal and bloody path that will ultimately force him to confront secrets he fought to leave behind. John Wick scribe Derek Kolstad wrote the screenplay.
David Leitch and Kelly McCormick produced the pic via 87North, while Odenkirk and Marc Provissiero will produce through their Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment. Braden Aftergood will also serve as producer for Eighty Two Films.
Odenkirk is best known for his role as Saul Goodman in Breaking Bad and its spinoff series Better Call Saul. He also had a role in Steven Spielberg’s The Post, the Charlize Theron-Seth Rogen comedy Long Shot, and is set to appear in Sony’s remake of Little Women this Christmas.
