Now You
See Me 3:
What We
Know So Far

THIS ARTICLE THAT INVOLVES AN ONGOING NEWS STORY WAS last updated ON APRIL 11, 2022. THE FACTS OF THE STORY ARE ACCURATE AS OF THAT DATE.

“Now You See Me 3” was given the green light while “NYSM2” was still in theaters in 2016 but news of its production died down over the next couple of years. Thankfully now, Lionsgate looks primed to get their magical house of cards in order, and it appears we're finally starting to see some movement on the next chapter in the “Now You See Me” franchise.
It should come as no particular surprise that we actually don't know all that much about the film just yet. Lionsgate has finally brought a writer on board to craft a screenplay for the film after a few years of stagnation which means production is at its early stages and we don’t know when “Now You See Me 3” will make it to theatres.
Benedict Cumberbatch was tied to the project, to play a villain, but that seems like a long shot now because of his MCU commitments. Fans would love to see the original cast reunite for the third movie but don’t be surprised if Lionsgate forges a completely new path with new faces.
When last we saw The Four Horsemen, some serious twists led them further into the world of The Eye than they ever could've imagined going. Viewers have yet to get a proper look behind the curtain of The Eye but that could change with this third installment now that the wily band of illusionists has been officially invited into the fold.
