Paramount Pushes Up Release Date for ‘The Lost City’
The Paramount comedy “The Lost City” will now open three weeks earlier than expected, its release date having moved from April 15, 2022 to March 25, 2022.
The shuffle came after a number of Marvel movies shifted dates, with “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” vacating the March 25 date.
The comedy stars Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum as a romance novelist and her cover model, respectively. The film will follow the pair as they are kidnapped and end up in a jungle adventure to fight for their lives. “The Lost City” (formerly titled “The Lost City of D”) also stars Patti Harrison, Oscar Nunez, Da’Vine Joy Randolph and Daniel Radcliffe. Aaron and Adam Nee wrote and directed the film with Bullock as producer for Fortis Films alongside Liza Chasin of 3dot Productions as well as Seth Gordon for Exhibit A.
