'The 355' US release pushed back a year by Universal.

In the latest change to the US theatrical release calendar, Universal Pictures has pushed all-female spy thriller The 355 from January 15 next year to January 14, 2022.

The 355, a female ensemble globe-trotting spy-thriller, is directed by Simon Kinberg and stars Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong'o, Penélope Cruz, Diane Kruger and Fan Bingbing.

Universal Pictures nabbed "The 355" after it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2018. The studio reportedly paid more than $20 million for domestic distribution rights.

The plot revolves around a top-notch group of international rival agents who must work together in order to stop a plot to bring about World War III. A recent trailer featured themes of James Bond, Mission: Impossible and the Bourne series.

The film is produced by Chastain and Kelly Carmichael for Chastain’s Freckle Films and by Kinberg for his Genre Films.

"The 355" would not be the first film to move out of Q1 of 2021 as questions around when theaters can reopen still remain even as coronavirus cases continue to rise across the country. Universal also previously delayed the release of “Marry Me” with Jennifer Lopez from a Valentine’s Day release to instead open in May 2021.
