Release Delayed for ‘The Buddy Games’ with Nick Swardson, Dax Shepard, Olivia Munn and Jensen Ackles


Back in February, Nick Swardson posted some exciting news regarding the highly-anticipated film, The Buddy Games, which was directed by Josh Duhamel. He stated that the film would finally be released in May of 2020. However, due to COVID-19, that release date came and went without any mention of the film.

In an interview with the Duluth News Tribune last month, Duhamel gave an update on the film and the delayed release.

It was supposed to be released on 300 screens nationwide in March, but the coronavirus scuttled that plan. After being pushed to July, Duhamel might now have to wait until August, December or even next year for his movie to go public.

The film’s release seems up in the air, but Duhamel remains hopeful it will come out soon.

The Buddy Games stars Dax Shepard, Olivia Munn, Nick Swardson, with an appearance by Supernatural‘s Jensen Ackles. IMDb describes the movie as, “A group of friends reunite to play The Buddy Games, a wild assortment of absurd physical and mental challenges. In the process, they’ll heal old wounds, right past wrongs and figure out the true meaning of friendship… or die trying.”
