Sony Pictures' planned Bloodshot movie is now set for a 2019 release with Harbinger to follow that, according to sources close to the production. Director Dave Wilson and screenwriter Eric Heisserer have already been hired for Bloodshot, with rumors that Jared Leto and Vin Diesel could play the titular lead role.
In 2015, Sony optioned Valiant's Bloodshot and Harbinger in a five-picture deal to include two sequels and a crossover Harbinger Wars film. At the time, Bloodshot was pegged to be released in 2017.
“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' presidnt Doug Belgrad.
In June 2017, Newsarama reported that Bloodshot had slid back to a planned late 2018 release date.
No reason has been given for these schedule changes for Sony's planned Valiant movies.
