Lionsgate announced release dates for two upcoming projects: sequel Now You See Me 2 and roadtrip comedy Dirty Grandpa.
The sequel to the 2013 hit film about magicians who perform heists will hit theaters on June 10, 2016.
Summit is releasing the film, which will see the return of Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine.
Jon M. Chu is directing the film, which is produced by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Bobby Cohen.
Now You See Me exceeded expectations when it opened in May 2013 to a $29.4 million domestic debut. It went on to earn $351.7 million worldwide.
The only other wide release set for the June 10, 2016, weekend is Sony’s Uncharted.
Dirty Grandpa (working title) will star Zac Efron and Robert De Niro, as The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reported during the Toronto Film Festival.
The comedy, which is slated for release on Dec. 25, 2015, follows an uptight, soon-to-be-married man who is tricked into driving his foul-mouthed grandfather, a former Army general, to Florida for spring break.
Dan Mazer is directing the film from a script by John Phillips. Barry Josephson, Bill Block and Michael Simkin are producing.
The Lionsgate film will open up against other Christmas 2015 wide releases, including Mission Impossible 5, The Revenant and Joy.
