Jon M. Chu Returning to Direct ‘Now You See Me 3’

Jon M. Chu is returning to the director’s chair for Lionsgate’s “Now You See Me 3,” Variety has learned exclusively.

The studio struck a deal with Chu nearly two months before it releases his “Now You See Me 2” on June 10 — a signal that it believes the sequel will perform in the same range as the 2013 original, which took in $351.7 million worldwide.

CEO Jon Feltheimer announced nearly a year ago during a conference call with analysts that Lionsgate had already started planning for the third film, but gave no details.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm looking forward to seeing the second one so we'll see if it's as good as the first one then I can see if I'm going to be ready for a third.

Didnt think they would make a sequel, let alone a 3rd. Loved the 1st one. Didnt see the twist at the end comin at all

Maybe they should wait for the sequel to come out.
