Now You See Me set for sequel magic

Illusionist heist drama Now You See Me is set for a sequel after making a magical $350 million at the international box office last year (13).

The surprise hit about a group of rival magicians who join forces to rob a bank will return with its original cast and a new director, according to insiders.

Jon M. Chu, the man behind the G.I. Joe sequel, is in talks to take over from Louis Leterrier, according to Variety.

Dave Franco, who starred in the summer, 2013 film, recently addressed rumors of a sequel, stating, "I've heard a pitch of the story. It's actually going to be really exciting. I was slightly weary, just because you never know when it comes to a sequel. But I think the first one opened up enough avenues. There are many directions left to explore. There are many places that it can go."

Franco starred alongside Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Mark Ruffalo in the hit film.
