 RELEASE DATE CHANGES

THE FANTASTIC FOUR (2015) FOX

Compared to "Spider-Man," this was LONG overdue. Fox and Marvel have offically set March 6, 2015 as the release date for the new "The Fantastic Four." The reboot will be directed by Josh Trask ("Chronicle"), although no word yet on whether or not any of the original cast will return. The first film and its sequel were released in 2005 and 2007, and scored worldwide grosses of $330M and $289M, respectively.

Although those numbers are on the low-end for big-budget comic book adaptations, Fox is obiviously hip to the fact that the Marvel brand name is the hottest thing in Hollywood right now. The studio will partner with Marvel to release "The Wolverine" this summer--featuring Hugh Jackman's fifth big screen appearance--while Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" will arrive July 18, 2014.

Now if they can just get The Thing to not look like a costume that was bought at Party City. CGI, anyone?

UNTITLED PEANUTS FILM FOX

"Good grief...what took so long, Charlie Brown!" 

Fox and Blue Sky Animation have finally locked down the rights to make an animated film based on Charles Schultz's beloved comic strip featuring Snoopy, Woodstock, Charlie Brown and the rest of the "Peanuts" gang.

The release date marks the 65th anniversary of the debut of the “Peanuts” comic strip and the 50th anniversary of the landmark television special, “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” 

Steve Martino ("Ice Age: Continental Drift," "Horton Hears a Who!") will direct, with a script by Craig Schultz, Bryan Schutlz, and Cornelius Uliano.  Craig is Charles' son, and Bryan his grandson...which was likely part of the deal.

Peanuts dance party may now commence.
