Yesterday, it was announced by Universal Pictures that they were moving their action thriller Nobody from August 14th to February 26th, 2021. Yet another studio release moving out of the summer season.
Nobody’s script was penned by Derek Kolstad, the creator of the John Wick franchise and one of the writers working on the Marvel Studios series The Falcon & The Winter Soldier. Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul actor Bob Odenkirk plays the lead character of Hutch.
Hutch Mansell (Bob Odenkirk), an underestimated and overlooked dad and husband, taking life’s indignities on the chin and never pushing back.
When two thieves break into his suburban home one night, Hutch declines to defend himself or his family, hoping to prevent serious violence. His teenage son, Blake (Gage Munroe), is disappointed in him and his wife, Becca (Connie Nielsen), seems to pull only further away. The aftermath of the incident strikes a match to Hutch’s long-simmering rage, triggering dormant instincts and propelling him on a brutal path that will surface dark secrets and lethal skills.
It was directed by Ilya Naishuller, who I first reported would be working on Nobody and previously gave us the film Hardcore Henry.
David Leitch (Deadpool 2, John Wick, Atomic Blonde, Hobbs & Shaw) is also producing.
Universal doesn’t seem to be as optimistic as other studios concerning the summer and is being extremely protective of their release slate.
