Lionsgate send word that they’ve updated their release schedule by penciling in a December 25th, 2015 release for the Zac Efron and Robert DeNiro-led comedy ‘Dirty Grandpa,’ and a June 10th, 2016 bow for ‘Now You See Me 2.’ The brief synopsis for ‘Dirty Grandpa’ (the film’s tentative title) is as follows: “Right before his wedding, an uptight guy is tricked into driving his foul-mouthed grandfather, a former Army general, to Florida for spring break.” Dan Mazer, long-time writing and production partner of Sacha Baron Cohen, is directing the film.
The sequel to the 2013’s ‘Now You See Me’ sees the return of Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine. ‘Now You See Me’ grossed more than $350 million worldwide and displayed staying power throughout a competitive summer. The film pit an elite FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against “The Four Horsemen,” a super-team of the world’s greatest illusionists. “The Four Horsemen” pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances, showering the stolen profits of their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law. Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) is taking over from Louis Leterrier in the director’s chair for ‘Now You See Me 2.’
