Lionsgate is really showing a lot of confidence in the future of NOW YOU SEE ME. That's what happens when it's the only thing even resembling a franchise a studio has under their belt now that THE HUNGER GAMES have come to an end. Having already announced plans for a third NOW YOU SEE ME last year, it appears as if it's truly going to happen with Jon M. Chu being signed to return to the director's chair for another sequel. 

Chu took over the reins from Louis Leterrier for NOW YOU SEE ME 2, which hasn't arrived in theaters yet and won't until mid-summer. Lionsgate must like what he's done with the sequel or at least believes that #2 will do similar business to the $351.7 million the first one did worldwide and hopes he can do it for a third time. 

Chu's resume has been built on STEP UP and G.I. JOE sequels thus far, so continuing to be the driving force behind the NOW YOU SEE me sequels is right up his alley.

NOW YOU SEE ME 2 appears in theaters starting June 10.

I couldn't get on with the first one simply because the magic tricks didn't feel like magic tricks but rather CGI cop outs. I dunno what I was expecting but I just don't think it was as clever as it thought it was. The Prestige for example was far more captivating.

Someone suggested on this site to call the sequel 'Now You Don't'; which is a fantastic idea, but they'll probably just name it Now You See Me 3.
