Penelope Cruz is heading to the 355 a week earlier…
Simon Kinberg’s femme action feature The 355, starring the 47-year-old Spanish Oscar-winning actress, will be released a week earlier, on January 7, 2022.
The film was original scheduled to be released over MLK Weekend.
In the film, five women band together to stop a global organization from acquiring a weapon that could thrust the teetering world into total chaos.
The film was bought by Universal for domestic distribution at the Cannes Film Festival back in 2018 for a reported $20M.
The foreign partners, arranged through FilmNation, are hoping for a global launch for what they hope will be another Bourne Identity–like franchise, this one led by an all female lead cast including Jessica Chastain, Diane Kruger, Lupita Nyong’o, Cruz and Fan Bingbing, with Édgar Ramirez and Sebastian Stan also appearing.
The 355 is directed by Kinberg. He co-wrote the screenplay with Theresa Rebeck.
