According to reports, it seems that Paramount Studios has set dated Antoine Fuqua’s next film Infinite, a feature adaptation of the D. Eric Maikranz novel The Reincarnationist Papers, for August 7, 2020.
With that move, it seems the new release-date move pushes the studio’s anticipated Eddie Murphy-Arsenio Hall Coming to America 2 from that date to December 18, 2020 — which is the old Avatar 2 spot. Coming to America 2 –which is still untitled– will join Disney/Fox/Amblin’s West Side Story on that date.
It was reported that actor Chris Evans (of Captain America fame) is in talks to join Infinite, which revolves around Evan Michaels, a man who was haunted by memories of two past lives and stumbles upon a centuries-old secret society of similar individuals who make up the Cognomina, made up of those who possess total recall of their past lives and whose members have been agents of change throughout history. He seeks to join their ranks.
Infinite will square off against an untitled WB event film on August 7 next year.
Paramount also announced that its untitled Paramount Animation pic on the schedule for July 17, 2020, is now titled Rumble, and it has been pushed back to July 31 next year.
