I liked Now You See Me. Well, I liked the first two acts of Now You See Me. If you’re able to get past all the stupidity that comes at the end, the movie is a light and breezy piece of entertainment.
Now You See Me isn’t a movie that I would say needs a sequel, but that’s not stopping Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer from announcing today that one is being made. There’s no director, screenwriter or stars confirmed for the film yet, but the studio wants to get the production of the film started by 2014. The hope is to make the movie by 2015.
Now You See Me was considered a sleeper hit earlier this year, as it grossed $115 million domestically and $117 million abroad. It still has yet to open in China, Australia and Japan.
