The new sports movie Challengers has been delayed.
This movie is set to star Zendaya, Josh O’Connor, and Mike Faist. “Following a losing streak, the wife and coach of a Grand Slam champion signs him up for Challenger event where he will face off against her former lover,” reads the official synopsis.
MGM recently announced that the movie, which was originally going to premiere at Venice Film Festival and have a theatrical release on September 15, 2024, has been delayed. This move is partially because of the ongoing SAG-AFTRA actors strike, where actors will not be able to attend red carpets to promote their movies.
What is the new Challengers release date?
The movie is now set to release on April 26, 2024.
It will be directed by Luca Guadagnino, who has directed movies like Call Me By Your Name, Suspiria, and most recently, Bones and All. It is written by Justin Kuritzkes. The film is produced by Zendaya and Guadagnino, alongside Rachel O’Connor and Amy Pascal, both of whom previously worked with Zendaya on the three MCU Spider-Man movies.
