Director James Gunn was expected to make a surprise movie announcement during Sony’s San Diego Comic-Con 2018 panel last month. But the same did not happen.
The reveal was canceled at the last moment after Walt Disney Studios announced that they have severed ties with James Gunn and fired him from helming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 because of his old offensive tweets on controversial topics such as pedophilia and rape.
Now, finally, we know that the mystery movie in question is a horror movie which the filmmaker has apparently already completed production on. While Sony hasn’t officially announced anything about the James Gunn directed horror film, a recent release schedule from the film studio has listed an untitled James Gunn horror movie with a November 30 release date.
When Screen Rant reached out to Sony Pictures for comments, the film studio confirmed that the untitled horror movie is right on schedule for its November release in spite of no announcement being made at Comic-Con.
While nothing much about the mystery film is known at the moment, the fact that the film belongs in the horror genre technically falls in line with speculation that it will be a Bloodborne adaptation. Developed by FromSoftware and published by Sony Computer Entertainment, Bloodborne is an action RPG game. The 2015 released game was a big hit as it sold more than 2 million copies within the first few months of its release.
Gunn’s teaser image that he posted on his Facebook page prior to Sony’s scheduled Hall H panel had a metallic background, blood-red letters and a scratched symbol that resembled the Heir rune from Bloodborne. More information about Sony’s horror film is expected to come out soon.
While fans continue to call out Disney to reconsider its decision of firing Gunn, the film studio remains adamant on not bringing back the filmmaker as the director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which is slated for a 2020 release.
