Four years after the sequel, a third Now You See Me movie has been confirmed by Lionsgate.

Centred on a group of criminal magicians named The Four Horsemen, the first two instalments were blessed with incredible big-name stars – Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, Dave Franco and Daniel Radcliffe – and now Top Gun: Maverick co-writer Eric Warren Singer has planned a heist to get them back together (via Deadline).

"Eric has always been fascinated with the fine art of deception and illusion in all of its forms and he came to us with a great story that takes the mythology of Now You See Me and pushes The Four Horsemen to a whole new level with our key returning cast and new characters," said Lionsgate chiefs Nathan Kahane and Erin Westerman.

"The Now You See Me franchise has been built on keeping the audience surprised and guessing," they continued.

"Any great magician knows, you can't keep doing the same tricks. And Eric and his team of illusionists have something special up their sleeve for this new film."

Although a director is yet to be selected for this one, Now You See Me 3 promises to be something magical with Eric, who was Oscar-nominated for his work with David O Russell on American Hustle, on board.
