G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M Chu is already done shooting his Jem and the Holograms adaptation, and now it looks like he's ready to take on the world of magic. According to The Wrap he is the frontrunner to helm Now You See Me 2 for Summit Entertainment.
The first film was directed by Louis Leterrier, and regardless of how ridiculous it was I really had a great time watching it. I was hoping that we'd get a sequel, so it's good to see that it's moving forward. The movie made more than $350 million worldwide.
The first movie follows an FBI agent and an Interpol detective as they track a team of illusionists (The Four Horsemen) who pull off bank heists during their performances and give their audiences the money.
Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, and Mark Ruffalo are all expected to return. I don't see how they could make it without them. It will be fun to see where they take the story and get some more insight into the underground magician society they were brought into.
