A KARATE KID Remake + Delays At Sony

Sony's Karate Kid film has been confirmed for June 7th, 2024, and is described as "the return to the original Karate Kid franchise". No filmmaker or any further details were revealed. The franchise has enjoyed a revival in recent years with the successful Netflix series Cobra Kai; however, it's been confirmed that the Sony film will be standalone and unrelated to the TV show.

Alongside the announcement of this new project, Sony also unveiled a complete calendar reshuffle for many of its most high-profile projects, from Madame Web to Missing. Find them all below.

Sony has also set a date for its True Haunting film, directed by Gary Fleder. The horror film, which recounts the true story of the world's first televised exorcism, will release on January 6th, 2023. The Boys' Erin Moriarty and Jamie Campbell Bower (Stranger Things) star.  

Missing, the next film in the Searching franchise that stars Storm Reid, Nia Long, and Joaquim de Almeida, now opens on February 24th, 2023. Missing will be Will Merrick and Nick Johnson's directorial debut, though the pair previously worked as editors on the John Cho-starring original.

The Adam Driver-starring science fiction film 65, in which an astronaut crash lands on a mysterious planet only to discover he's not alone, has been moved up one month. The feature comes from A Quiet Place writers Scott Beck and Bryan Woods and will release on March 10th, 2023.

Elsewhere in the Sony world, its Marvel-based films continue to be delayed. The Aaron Taylor-Johnson film, Kraven the Hunter, has been pushed from January 13th to October 6th, 2023. Meanwhile, Madame Web will be opening on February 16th, 2024, pushed from Kraven's new date, October 6th.

Lastly, the Chris Pratt-voiced, computer-animated Garfield feature film will be moving back three months to May 24th, 2024.
