In May, the sci-fi action film was pushed by a year, moving from May 31, 2019 to June 5, 2020. That announcement came two weeks after director Damian Szifron exited the project.
Szifron, who wrote and directed Argentina’s Oscar foreign-language nominee “Wild Tales,” also wrote the screenplay for the modernized update of the 1970s TV series “The Six Million Dollar Man.” Both are based on the novel “Cyborg” by Martin Caidin.
