Zendaya's "Challengers" Moved to 2024, Missing Venice over Strike

Director Luca Guadagnino's R-rated film "Challengers" departs 2023 due to the ongoing strike.

MGM reschedules "Challengers" for a theatrical release on April 26, 2024.

The film was supposed to premiere at the Venice Film Festival with Zendaya's support.

However, with Zendaya unable to promote the film due to the strike, the release date was shifted.

Edoardo De Angelis' "Comandante" replaces "Challengers" as the new opening night feature at Venice.

The Venice Film Festival is scheduled to run from Aug. 30 to Sept. 9.

The strike affects fall festivals' planning, possibly without SAG-AFTRA actors for promotional work.
