With a fall star approaching, and cast members Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson and Isla Fisher all set to return, it looks like 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' director Jon M. Chu will be taking over the reigns of 'Now You See Me 2' from Louis Leterrier.
Now You See Me 2
Now that summer is almost officially over, it's time to crown 'Now You See Me' as the biggest surprise hit of the summer. The film -- which wasn't based on a comic book, nor a sequel or prequel -- ended up making over a hundred million dollars domestically and nearly 300 worldwide. Lionsgate had already announced a follow up, but today director Louis Leterrier spilled that he will be returning to helm it.
In a summer filled with extremely expensive films falling on their faces, the reasonably budgeted magician thriller 'Now You See Me' has proven itself to be one of the biggest successes of the year. And you know what this means, right? A sequel is already being planned, of course. If we're lucky, they'll have the nerve to call it 'Now You Don't' or 'Now You See Me Again' or 'Look Who's Seeing Me Now.'
