Ted 2

Mark Wahlberg expected to return

With so many high-profile sequels set to bow in the summer of 2015, Universal and Media Rights Capital have now added another one into the mix, dating “Ted 2″ for June 26, 2015.

Mark Walhberg is set to reprise his role with Seth MacFarlane coming back as writer, director and the voice of the vulgar teddy bear.

The previous installment broke numerous box office records going on to gross more than $540 million worldwide.

Summer 2015 is already looking like a big summer with installments in “The Avengers,” “Terminator” and the untitled “Batman-Superman” project all set to bow that summer.

As of right now, no film has come on to the June 26 date and like the last installment, the film should be good counter-programing against more of the family fare films that will have already bowed.
