Summit also slated both period epic Gods of Egypt and YA adaption Allegiant for release in 2016.

Bek (Brenton Thwaites), a defiant mortal, enlists the aid of the powerful god Horus (Coster-Waldau) in an unlikely alliance against the evil overlord. Alex Proyas directed the pic.
Universal's untitled Illumination Entertainment project is also slated for release on that date.

The first film in the series, Divergent, will hit theaters March 21, 2014, and the second, Insurgent, will come be released on March 20, 2015. The films star Shailene Woodley and Theo James. The story is set in a futuristic North America where people are divided into groups based on the traits they most value.
The only other film currently slated for release on that date is Fox's Mumbai Musical (working title), a Bollywood-style musical.
