Louis Leterrier’s Now You See Me to receive a sequel
Following the success of Louis Leterrier's Now You See Me, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer confirmed the news during a public call on Friday.
Now You See Me has grossed over $275 million (£180m) at the worldwide box office since its debut on May 31 and discussing the link between his character J Daniel Atlas's confident stage persona and performing in front of cameras, Jesse Eisenberg told Digital Spy "I feel very nervous as an actor but then we're playing these characters that are very confident.
It's a strange thing once you trick yourself to feel confident like your character it works. You feel imbued with this sense of assurance."
Entertainment Weekly report that the thriller that centred on a group of magicians known as the Four Horsemen who execute bank robberies during their stage shows and hand over the spoils to their audience that starred Eisenberg alongside Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Mark Ruffalo and Woody Harrelson will begin production on a sequel next year.
