Universal is set to release brand new movies The Invisible Man and The Hunt early, as cinemas around the world close in the wake of the coronavirus.
The report also suggests that A Quiet Place director John Krasinski worked on a pitch for the film in 2019.
'The Hunt' will be released on 13 March, months after President Trump condemned the satiric political thriller featuring elites hunting "deplorables."
The makers of forthcoming horror movie Happy Death Day 2U have agreed to move the film's release date, following pressure from a Parkland dad.
Studio said to be eyeing the '21 Jump Street' star for the role of iconic monster hunter, previously played by Hugh Jackman.
