There might be a third Now You See Me movie coming.
THR reports that Lionsgate is looking to add to the franchise with a third film with Eric Warren Singer to write the script.
“Eric has always been fascinated with the fine art of deception and illusion in all of it forms and he came to us with a great story that takes the mythology of Now You See Me and pushes The Four Horsemen to a whole new level with our key returning cast and new characters,” Nathan Kahane, Lionsgate motion picture group president, shared in a statement.
He adds, “The Now You See Me franchise has been built on keeping the audience surprised and guessing. Any great magician knows, you can’t keep doing the same tricks. And Eric and his team of illusionists have something special up their sleeve for this new film.”
The first movie starred Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Caine, Melanie Laurent, and Morgan Freeman.
The second added Daniel Radcliffe and Lizzy Caplan in place of Isla, as she was pregnant with her third child.
