Now you see me, now you don’t!

The third installment to “Now You See Me” is in the works, and the film is bringing back the director from this sequel.

Director Jon M. Chu has been signed by Lionsgate to direct “Now You See Me 3,” and his directing credits include “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” “Jem and the Holograms,” “Step Up 3D” and “Step Up 2,” and the documentary, “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.” He also has directed commercials for the video game “Black Ops” and Virgin America’s Flight Safety video.

The first movie grossed $350 million worldwide with a $75 million budget, so there’s no doubt the soon-to-be released sequel and third film will be just as successful!

Release date is still to be determined, but “Now You See Me 2” will go out on June 10th.
