Originally planned for release in the fall of 2014, Relativity Media’s Turkeys has moved up a full year and will now hit theaters on November 1 of this year. Universal Pictures, meanwhile, has set their sequel to The Best Man, now titled The Best Man Holiday, for November 15.
Directed by Jimmy Hayward, Turkeys is an animated comedy that follows two turkeys from opposite sides of the tracks must put aside their differences and team up to travel back in time to change the course of history – and get turkey off the menu for good. Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson, Amy Poehler, Dan Fogler, Lesley Nicol, George Takei, Colm Meaney and Keith David provide voices.
The Best Man Holiday, meanwhile, stars Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Monica Calhoun, Melissa De Sousa and Regina Hall and continues the story of the characters featured in the 1999 hit. Malcolm D. Lee returns as writer and director.
