Sony Pictures’ upcoming 2023 and 2024 theatrical slate is about to change considerably. The shakeup, according to Deadline affects Kraven the Hunter, Ghostbusters: Afterlife‘s sequel, Venom 3, and They Listen. The delays are due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes, and because studios are greedy and don’t want to pay writers and actors a fair wage. Remember, none of these movies happen without actors and writers.

Kraven The Hunter has been delayed from October 6th, 2023 to August 30th, 2024. The trailer for the film debuted last month to pretty raving reviews from fans. We’ll have to wait about a year to see the film, that has already been delayed before.

The yet untitled Ghostbusters: Afterlife sequel was set for release on December 20th, 2023 and is now releasing on March 29th, 2024. Deadline says that the film has finished principle photography, but does need actors for reshoots. That March release date was originally set for Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse.

Venom 3 didn’t previously have a release date, but now will come out in theaters on July 12th, 2024. There’s plenty of competition around that date, so it might not hold.

They Listen was originally bumped back a whole year on the schedule, but now doesn’t even have a slot. It’s unknown when this one will come out.

With no end to the strikes in sight and the AMPTP refusing to negotiate, more delays are likely across the Hollywood landscape.
