Speaking at an earnings call earlier today, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer confirmed that the studio has entered the “early planning” stage in relation to the threequel, and a Now You See Me 3 dovetails with the company’s plan to double down on bankable franchises. Back in 2013, the original movie pulled in an impressive $350 million at the worldwide box office off the back of a $75 million budget, and Lionsgate will be hoping to increase this profit margin moving forward.
In fact, it’s a trend seen across the studio’s roster of IP, what with the »

Leslye Headland grabs the remote and rewinds. "Wait, something is really interesting here," she says, "because I think they may have used the F-word. It’s huge!" We're watching the beloved yet divisive 1997 rom-com classic My Best Friend’s Wedding, and Headland is right: Julia Roberts (as lovelorn protagonist Julianne) dropped the expletive while explaining why her friend George (Rupert Everett) — now posing as her fiancé — has swooped down to accompany her to the big wedding. “He just came in for a few hours," said Julianne, "to, uh, fuck me.” We scream. What we have here is not just an F-bomb, but the kind that implies actual sex. It's all a little bit scandalous — not that Headland should be blushing, since her films aren't afraid of F-bombs in the least. In her directorial debut Bachelorette, Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan, and Isla Fisher played some very-r-rated bridesmaids; Headland's new film Sleeping »

Chu’s heist follow-up, and how the director’s approach will incorporate a more diverse range of tricks rather than solely focusing on the Vegas-styled showboating.
