A higher-up at Lionsgate is offering fans an update on the status of Now You See Me 3 over a decade after the first film’s release.
- Lionsgate confirms Now You See Me 3 is still in active development.

It’s been over a decade since the release of the film Now You See Me, which garnered more than $350 million during its theatrical run, with a sequel that launched three years later in 2016. And while there was confirmation that a third film would happen one day, there have been little to no updates since that news broke. But as it turns out, the film is still very much in development after all these years.
Lionsgate Suggests Now You See Me 3 is Coming Along Smoothly
When speaking to Comic Book about the recent news that Now You See Me will return with a third installment, Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group Chair Joe Drake admitted that the studio is extremely optimistic about what’s to come. The executive notes, “We reimagined Now You See Me with Ruben Fleischer, who is an absolute master at shepherding franchises. If you think he did Venom and Uncharted, couldn’t be happier about that. That’s going to start in the spring.”
In 2020, Nathan Kahane, President of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, initially made the announcement with Erin Westerman, President of Motion Picture Production for the studio.”Eric has always been fascinated with the fine art of deception and illusion in all of its forms, and 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. The Now You See Me franchise has been built on keeping the audience surprised and guessing. Any great magician knows you can’t keep doing the same tricks. And Eric and his team of illusionists have something special up their sleeve for this new film.”
