Its also being reported that Fox 2000 will be shutdown responsible films such as Fight Club, Life of Pi, Walk the Line, Hidden Figures, Love Simon, The Fault in Our Stars, Man on Fire, The Thin Red Line, Bridge of Spies, Marley and Me, The Devil Wears Prada, Never Been Kissed, The Counselor, The Hate U Give etc. Many are hoping that Netflix and Amazon may help get some people back on their feet.
