Now You See Me 3: Release Date Confirmed?
The film has not yet been given a premiere date. However, given the length of time, it has taken to get to theatres, it’s likely that Lionsgate will do everything in its power to rush the film’s production and release. Since production on Now You See Me 3 is well underway as of this writing, the movie could hit theatres in the middle of 2023.
The Expected Storyline of Now You See Me 3
The third installment of the Now You See Me series will be very different from its precedents. The plot will be far more original and engaging as a result. The filmmakers have been deliberately vague so that fans won’t make assumptions.
It was also announced that Eric Warren Singer has been hired by Lionsgate to pen the screenplay for their next film, Now You See Me 3.
Eric’s contributions to American Hustle earned him Oscar nods as well. Eric “has always been fascinated with the fine art of deception and illusion in all its forms,” said Nathan Kahane, president of Lionsgate’s motion picture division.
“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,” he added.
Kahane elaborated, saying, “The Now You See Me franchise has been built on keeping the audience surprised and guessing. Even the greatest magician eventually runs out of new tricks to try. And Eric and the other illusionists in the new film are planning something really spectacular.
