Sony Pictures Animation is moving forward on a sequel to their fall hit Hotel Transylvania, which has already earned more than $250 million at the box office worldwide. The studio has set a September 25, 2015 release date for the animated follow-up.

The studio is currently searching for a new director, since Hotel Transylvania filmmaker Genndy Tartakovsky will not be available. We reported in June that Genndy Tartakovsky is making Popeye for the studio, which is set for release on September 26, 2014.
