The first Now You See Me takes place in a world much like our own, except that magicians are as famous and anti-establishment as British rock bands in the '70s. A ridiculous thriller that overdosed on twists, turns, and secret identities, it made a mint and spawned Now You See Me 2, which tried to up the ante with the villains from the first movie attempting to exact revenge—except with little mystery left to explore, many plot points were explained away with "we did it with magic!" It was also filmed and set almost entirely in the Chinese territory of Macau, which sets up a third installment. In Now You See Me 2, Taiwanese superstar Jay Chou played a magician and magic shop owner named Li, and he's set to be the star of a third film in the Now You See Me series. The spinoff, a co-production of Lionsgate and Chinese film company Leomus Pictures, will be shot entirely in Chinese—and it appears likely to be made alongside yet another English-language Now You See Me sequel, which entered development even before Now You See Me 2 arrived in theaters.
