Sony Pictures Animation will make a sequel to “Hotel Transylania,” one of the year's surprise hits, a spokesman for the studio told TheWrap.
Tentatively titled “Hotel Transylvania 2,” the film is set for a 2015 release. There is no director attached at the moment. Genndy Tartakovsky, who directed the first one, will be helming Sony Pictures Animation’s “Popeye.”
This is great news in the recent reports of Sony forcing their entertainment divisions to tighten belts due to the company's overall lack-luster financials. While the transformation of a hit movie into a hopeful hit series is the very foundation of MovieLand itself, we're glad to hear of the impending successes coming to members working in the Culver City area.
