Disney announced that The Muppets 2 and 1952 will premiere in 2014 while Pirates of the Caribbean 5 will come to theatres in 2015.
According to Zap2It, Disney has confirmed when a few of its most promising films including The Muppets 2, Pirates of the Caribbean 5, and 1952 will hit theatres.
The Muppets 2, set to come out on March 21, 2014, will have the same director, James Bobin, but will star Ricky Gervais instead of the original's lead Jason Segel. Other castmembers include Ty Burrell, and possibly Tina Fey, who is in negotiations to play a Russian gulag prison guard. The film begins shooting this month in London.
Additionally, the epic science fiction flick 1952 will be released on December 19, 2014. The movie was co-written by Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird, and will feature George Clooney. Despite a circulating Disney press release, Brad Bird took to Twitter on Monday to deny claims that the movie was going to be in 3D.
