Four magicians each answer a mysterious summons to an obscure address with secrets inside. A year later, they are the Four Horsemen, big-time stage illusionists who climax their sold-out Las Vegas show with a bank apparently robbed for real. This puts F.B.I. Agents Dylan Rhodes and Interpol Agent Alma Dray on the case to find out how they did it. However, this mystery proves to be difficult to solve, even with the insights of professional illusion exposer Thaddeus Bradley. What follows is a bizarre investigation where nothing is what it seems to be, with illusions, dark secrets. And hidden agendas galore as all involved are reminded of a great truth in this puzzle: the closer you look, the less you see. This is everything we are going to witness in Now You See Me 3.
Is Now You See Me 3 Actually Happening?
The Now You See Me film series consists of heist thriller films written by Ed Solomon, Boaz Yakin, and Edward Ricourt. The plot centers around the actions of a team of illusionists named “The Four Horsemen,” who pull off near impossible heists. The first film was released in 2013, while the second was released in 2016, and a third film is in development. The first two movie series of Now You See Me received mixed reactions from critics, but at the same time, it was well appreciated by the audiences for its outstanding performance. The movie was a huge box office success and had grossed a whopping $700 million globally. No wonder fans are desperate and worried about what the future holds for the next movie, Now You See Me Season 3, but the good news is, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer has already confirmed the next installment of the movie.
In April 2020, Lionsgate announced that Eric Warren Singer would work as a screenwriter for the third sequel. He is popular for the upcoming action film Top Gun: Maverick, comedy crime film American Hustle, and more. Now You See Me 3 is set to release in 2022.
Now You See Me 3 Official Release Date
Since the release was JUST made public, it is obvious that not much information has been released yet. However, if we are sincere, that “progress” of the story which we can anticipate, and the plot of Now You See Me three, which is still being written and discussed upon, will probably start where the last one ended, attempting to continue where they left their existing characters off.
What is the Expected cast?
One thing is sure that the original cast from the previous two movies will definitely return for another movie. There is no official update about the cast. Although the studio, Lionsgate, has not revealed much about the updates about its development. Jesse Eisenberg, who played the role of J. Daniel Atlas (a member of Four Horsemen) in Now You See Me 2, has confirmed that he’ll return to the third movie. The franchise enthusiasts will be happy to know that Isla Fisher will reprise her role as Henley in the third movie. But Lizzy Caplan’s Lula May proved to be a worthy addition in the 2016 sequel in Fisher’s absence.
There are rumors that BBC Sherlock or MCU’s Doctor Strange Benedict Cumberbatch may join the franchise for the third part. His entry will be making it much more interesting as both are famous for their storyline and suspense.
Now you see me 3 Plot
An F.B.I. Agent and an Interpol Detective track a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances. And after the performance, they reward their audiences with the money.
It is said that the movie will be a lot more different and interesting than its last two ones. The storyline is going to be much more creative, and the action is going to be mind-blowing. There is much gossip going on, but we will only provide you the official ones.
It was also reported that Lionsgate hired a new screenwriter for the next movie. And it’s none other than Eric Warren Singer, who will be writing the script, for Now, You See Me 3. Eric was also nominated for Oscars for his works on American Hustle. “Eric has always been fascinated with the fine art of deception and illusion in all of its 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,” President of the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, Nathan Kahane stated.
“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.”
Now You See Me 3 will hit theatres in 2022. In the meantime, you can watch the previous two movies of NYSM or The White Lotus.
