Robert Pattinson’s ‘Mickey 17’ Faces Indefinite Delay – Hollywood Strikes and What to Expect

Published on

Robert Pattinson’s much-anticipated space drama, “Mickey 17,” directed by the acclaimed Bong Joon-Ho of “Parasite” fame, has encountered a setback, leading to an indefinite delay in its release. Initially slated for March 29, 2024, the film is no longer part of Warner Bros.’ 2024 release schedule. Delve into the reasons behind this unexpected delay and get a glimpse of what to anticipate when “Mickey 17” finally hits the screens.

Announced in January 2022, “Mickey 17” has been in the works for two years, with Bong serving as director, writer, and co-producer alongside Warner Bros. Production kicked off in August 2022 and concluded in December of the same year at Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden in Hertfordshire.

A report from Variety points to the Hollywood actors’ and writers’ strike, which occurred from May to November 2023, as the primary cause for the film’s delay. The strike disrupted production, requiring additional time to complete the remaining work on “Mickey 17,” based on Edward Ashton’s novel “Mickey7.” The storyline follows an employee on a mission to profitably colonize an icy world.

Leading the ensemble cast are Robert Pattinson, Mark Ruffalo, Steven Yeun, Naomi Ackie, and Toni Collette. The first glimpses suggest an intriguing plot, with Pattinson emerging seemingly unconscious from what appears to be a cryogenic freezer.

While the film’s release is delayed indefinitely, there is optimism that the makers will soon announce a new release date. The Hollywood strike has granted the director additional time for post-production, and Warner Bros. is expected to provide a revised timeline. Meanwhile, Warner Bros. has made schedule adjustments, moving up the release of “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire.”
