By now, fans of Now You See Me may have forgotten that there was a third movie being developed in the first place. The inaugural magician film was released in 2013, followed by a sequel in 2016.
Prior to the release of the sequel, Now You See Me 2, in theaters, Lionsgate set out to make a third installment. Seven years later, however, and fans still hadn’t received an update on production for the project – allegedly because of a change in the film’s director and lead writer.
In a recent call, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Chair Joe Drake told investors that Now You See Me 3 was in the works. He also shared that the project would be directed by Ruben Fleischer, who also directed the Eisenberg-starring Zombieland.
Now You See Me 3 is expected to be released in late 2024, though exact details surrounding the film haven’t been made public just yet.
