And a charismatic cast that included Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher, and Dave Franco.

With the exception of Fisher, who was replaced by Lizzy Caplan’s new character. Due to her pregnancy. The 2016 big-screen reunion of The Four Horsemen and their ominous overseers. The Eye proved every bit as much fun and every bit as profitable. Now You See Me 2 essentially matches its predecessor’s box office take. The sequel also expanded on the world of Now You See Me in intriguing new ways. They were further leaving the door open for a third film. In fact, Now You See Me 3 was approved while NYSM2 was still in theaters. With franchise producers are even lining up Benedict Cumberbatch to play the villain in the new film.

Plans for that much-anticipated sequel. However, they unexpectedly pulled a David Copperfield. As nothing has been heard of the project in a few years. Thankfully, Lionsgate appears to be getting their magical house in order. And it appears we finally see some movement on the next chapter in the Now You See Me franchise. Here’s everything we know so far about Now You See Me 3.

When Is Now You See Me 3 Coming Out?

It should come as no surprise that we don’t know much about Now You See Me 3 just yet. To be honest, the “movement”. We alluded to places like Now You See Me 3 in its early stages of development. However, in case you haven’t heard. After a few years of inactivity, Lionsgate has finally hired a screenwriter to write a screenplay for the film. That’s right. It appears that NYSM and NYSM2 writer Ed Solomon. They will not return to pen the third installment in the series. Now You See Me two director John M. Chu. He has also stepped down after initially indicating that he would return for the third film.

With those two departures and the addition of a new writer. It’s possible that we’ll see a slightly different version of The Four Horsemen than was originally planned. The good news is that Lionsgate is bringing in a real heavy hitter to pen the story. It was recently announced that Oscar-nominated American Hustle and Top Gun. Maverick screenwriter Eric Warren Singer had landed the job. Because the news was just leaked, it’s assumed Singer is still in the early stages of writing. It is, which means there’s probably not much else going on with the project right now.

Obviously, this means we have no idea when Now You See Me 3. It will be released in theatres. Given that Now You See Me two was released over four years ago. The studio is likely to want to expedite the project as much as possible. Assuming Singer has a little magic in his corner. Now You See Me 3 could pick up steam from here on out in the production process.

Who Will Appear in the Third Installment, Now You See Me 3?

Even though we don’t know when Now You See Me 3 will be released in theatres. The most obvious question now is that the film is moving forward. It is which of the original cast members will return. That is a particularly difficult question to answer because of nearly every single member of the cast. They have been extremely busy in the years since the last film was released.

However, before we get to the original, Now You See Me cast. We should probably assume that Benedict Cumberbatch is a genuine long shot to appear as the villain in Now You See Me 3. Cumberbatch will most likely be unable to take on the role due to his MCU commitments. But he also has a number of non-MCU projects in the works. That will keep him busy until at least 2022. We sincerely apologize to anyone hoping for an MCU reunion. Between Dr. Strange and the Hulk in Now You See Me 3.

Aside from Cumberbatch, the rest of the Now You See Me cast. It is riddled with unanswered questions. With names like Ruffalo, Eisenberg, Caine, Franco, Caplan, Freeman, and Harrelson on the cast list. We’re guessing it took some genuine scheduling magic to fit the Now You See Me two shoot into their hectic schedules.

That massive task will only become more difficult as time passes. Further, as an ensemble, this star-studded is bound to have a fairly full set of individual dance cards. Of course, it could also imply that Lionsgate intends to forge a completely new path. With new faces in the third Now You See Me film. However, it would be surprising if none of the franchise’s more well-known characters appeared.

What Is the Story of Now You See Me 3 About?

For what it’s worth, Jesse Eisenberg is still excited about making Now You See Me 3. However, he is reportedly worried about audiences losing interest in the world. More troubling, said audience may not remember all of the narrative acrobatics. That occurred over the course of the first two films.

Both Now You See Me and Now You See Me 2 played in the realm of cinematic sleight-of-hand. Almost to the point of outright absurdity, much like a great magic trick. However, they did so with such style, charm, and swagger. That audience didn’t seem to mind how many times the rug was pulled out from under them.

Further, a rash of shocking revelations leads them deeper into The Eye’s world. Then, they could’ve ever imagined. Unfortunately, viewers have yet to get a proper look behind The Eye’s curtain.

Now You See Me 3

That will presumably change with Now You See Me 3, as the shrewd group of illusionists. They have been officially invited into the fold. Further with their daring companion, Dylan (Ruffalo), at the helm. Even though we’re almost certain to see the inner workings of The Eye in Now You See Me 3. There’s not much else we know about the film’s possible plot. We know for certain that there will be plenty of magic at work in Now You See Me 3. And we can’t wait to get lost in the illusion once more.
