In 2015, Sony Pictures announced plans to produce Valiant Entertainment’s Bloodshot and Harbinger in a five-picture deal. This deal, which includes two sequels and the crossover Harbinger Wars film, pegged Bloodshot for a 2017 release. However, the company later slid plans for Bloodshot to 2018.
“The long-term plan that begins with Bloodshot will be a considerable priority for Sony in the months and years to come,” said then Sony Pictures’ president Doug Belgrad.
Now, the film is apparently set for a 2019 release with Harbinger to follow. No reason for these schedule changes have been revealed. Bloodshot is being directed by Dave Wilson along with screenwriter Eric Heisserer. Both Jared Leto and Vin Diesel have been rumored to play the titular role.
