Warner Bros. has pushed Gerard Butler drama â€œGeostormâ€ back three months to Jan. 13, 2017.
The studio originally dated the film for Oct. 21, 2016. â€œGeostormâ€ marks the feature directorial debut of Dean Devlin, who teamed with Roland Emmerich to produce 1996’s â€œIndependence Day.â€
Devlin’s Electric Entertainment is producing â€œGeostormâ€ with Skydance Productions. Producers are Devlin, Skydance’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg and Electric Entertainment’s Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan.
Warner Bros. picked up the project after Skydance developed it. Devlin also wrote â€œGeostorm,â€ which centers on a satellite designer who tries to prevent disaster when the world’s climate control satellites fail to function.
The Jan. 13, 2017, date already has four titles: Sony’s â€œthe Dark Tower,â€ MGM-Sony’s â€œThe Magnificent Seven,â€ Fox’s â€œBoss Babyâ€ and Lionsgate’s â€œPower Rangers.â€
