It appears that Lionsgate has found a willing director for the third film in the Now You See Me series in Ruben Fleischer.

In addition, the studio has also hired Seth Grahame-Smith to write the movie’s script with the producers, Bobby Cohen and Alex Kurtzmen, reprising their roles. 

Fleischer is a veteran director with numerous credits under his belt, specifically the first Venom film and the live-action adaptation of Uncharted.

Equally, Grahame-Smith has previously worked on The Lego Batman Movie and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

At the moment, Lionsgate has not provided any information about who the members of the cast will be, but many believe that Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson are coming back.
