Make way for another creature feature. Universal Pictures has announced that an unspecified third installment of its burgeoning monster movie franchise will hit theaters Feb. 15, 2019, over Presidents Day weekend.

The film will follow The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise and due June 9, 2017, and another undisclosed monster flick opening April 13, 2018.

Producers Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan are overseeing the franchise, which is intended to re-imagine Universal’s classic monster characters — such as the Wolf Man, Frankenstein’s monster, and Dracula — in an Avengers-style shared universe. The series will also feature an Invisible Man film starring Johnny Depp, but it is not yet known whether that will take one of the two reserved slots or get a different date.
