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.
