Earlier today, I was able to speak with the filmmaker over the phone about the Blu-ray and DVD release on September 3, and the director confirmed that he is coming back for this follow-up.
Here's what he had to say about the development process.
The filmmaker wouldn't divulge any plot details regarding the sequel. No cast members have officially signed on yet, but it seems likely that we will see the return of Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco as the Four Horseman, along with Mark Ruffalo as Dylan Rhodes.
Stay tuned for my full interview with Louis Leterrier for the Now You See Me Blu-ray and DVD release on September 3.
Now You See Me was released May 31st, 2013 and stars Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Mélanie Laurent, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine. The film is directed by Louis Leterrier.
