Now You See Me 2 and Dirty Grandpa on the way….

September 10th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Lionsgate has updated its release schedule today.

The Zac Efron and Robert De Niro comedy Dirty Grandpa will be released on December 25, 2015 and Now You See Me 2 for June 10, 2016.

Dan Mazer is in the Dirty Grandpa director’s chair, and it was written by John Phillips. In the film, an uptight guy is, right before his wedding, tricked into driving his foul-mouthed grandfather, a former Army general, to Florida for spring break. Barry Josephson, Bill Block and Michael Simkin are producing.

The Christmas Day release of Dirty Grandpa will open opposite David O. Russell’s Joy  (starring Jennifer Lawrence), Christopher McQuarrie’s Mission Impossible 5 (starring Tom Cruise) and, in limited release, Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu’s The Revenant.

Released in 2013, Now You See Me enjoyed more than $350 million at the box office and told the story of The Four Horsemen, the world’s greatest illusionists who pull off a series of heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances.

Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine are all set to reprise their roles with Jon M. Chu directing the sequel from a script by Ed Solomon and Pete Chiarelli. Alex Kurtzman, Bobby Cohen and Roberto Orci are producing.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
