‘Now You See Me 3’ Set for 2025 Release

After years in production, Lionsgate Films has finally announced the official release date for ‘Now You See Me 3.’ This long-awaited third instalment will follow ‘Now You See Me 2,’ which hit cinemas nearly a decade ago in 2016. The film is set to premiere on 14 November 2025, marking a nearly ten-year gap between the sequels.

While the plot details remain a mystery, fans can rest assured that the ensemble cast of thieving magicians will be back for their third act. Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, and Dave Franco will reprise their roles as the Four Horsemen. Joining them will be Mark Ruffalo and Morgan Freeman, along with new cast members Justice Smith, Rosamund Pike, Ariana Greenblatt, and Dominic Sea.

Production will be overseen by Lionsgate’s Meredith Wick and Erin Jones-Wesley, with Bobby Cohen and Alex Kurtzman serving as producers. The update comes as part of an official announcement by Lionsgate, per Deadline.

Despite the lengthy delay, anticipation remains high for the threequel. The new director, Ruben Fleischer, will helm the project, bringing a fresh perspective to the ‘Now You See Me’ universe. He replaces Boaz Yakin, and the screenplay will not feature Eric Warren Singer’s writing, marking a significant shift from the previous films. These changes come in the wake of the sequel’s extended development period.

The franchise has been a box office hit since its inception. The original 2013 film grossed $350 million against a $75 million budget, while the 2016 sequel earned $334 million with a budget of $120 million. This success set the stage for the development of the third film, which was officially greenlit in 2023.

However, it was also confirmed that ‘Now You See Me 3’ will not necessarily continue the sequels, indicating a potential reimagining of the storyline.
