So there you have it, shooting is expected to begin at the first of the year with a December 2019 release date set.

With as much as I enjoyed last year’s film, I may even take a trip to the theater for the next film.

No official title for the film as of yet, but the stars of the previous film, Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan will all return, and surely as time goes on we will learn of additions to the cast.
