Now You See Me 3 is an upcoming heist film directed by David Gould and written by Gavin James and Eric Warren Singer along with David Gould himself.
The first film premiered in May 2013 while a second film was released after three years in June 2016 under Lionsgate distribution.
Both the films are produced by Alex Kurtzman, Bobby Cohen, and Roberto Orci under K/O Paper Products and Summit Entertainment, and TIK Films(second part).

Will there be a Now You See Me 3?
Yes, there will be a third part of the mysterious thriller film because a third movie was announced even before the release of second Now You See movie on 10 June 2016. Even though, Jesse was enthusiastic about the positive decision of the production house, he was reportedly insecure about the falling viewership.
The man was worried if audience would lose interest in the world after second movie didn’t perform well as expected. Moreover, people tend to lose interest with time.
Even though, clouds of tensions are engulfing Now You Three Me plans, a new movie is possible until Lionsgate give up. On the other side, some viewers are much excited to see the new magical film, no matter what comes in their way.
When is now you see me 3 coming out? What is now you see me 3 release date?
Now You See Me 3 or Now You Three Me is expected to release around mid 2023 inside the United States.
The movie is in development in 2022 with Ed Solomon and Alex Kurtzman producing the film under Lionsgate production from the screenplay of Top Gun Maverick writer, Eric Warren Singer.
Since Eric Warren has written the scripts, we can expect to see the story moving in a different timeline.
Moreover, Benedict Cumberbatch will be seen in the role of villainous magician who will look after the four horsemen.
First Now You See me movie was released in May 2013 and then a second movie was released in June 2016.
Following the same pattern, the third Now You See Me movie was expected to release in July 2019 but it was delayed for indefinite time and hasn’t released yet in 2022.
We can also expect it to return sometime in 2023 since no release date has been officially announced yet and this year is about to end without any official confirmation from the side of creators.
Why was part 3 of Now You See Me delayed?
The shooting for Now You See Me 3 movie delayed because most of the cast members were busy doing another Hollywood films as The Adam Project(Mark Ruffalo), When You Finish Saving The World(Jesse Eisenberg), The Man From Toronto(Woody Harrelson), etc.
Moreover, the pandemic has proved to be one of the biggest hurdle in the delayed shooting of films that were planned to release in 2020-2021.
The filming and production wasn’t completed on time and the projects were keep on piling up.
Since the actors assigned for the film were left with multiple pending projects as Dr Strange 2, they had to manage their time to cast in every assigned film.
It seems that the actors have sacrificed the third Now You See Me film to cast in another films for their roles. But it doesn’t mean that movie will never release.
Whenever the cast members will return to reprise their roles after finishing the pending projects, we will be able to see the group of magical heist together.

What is the plot of Now you See Me 3?
Jesse Eisenberg has confirmed that the story of Now You Three Me will be different from the first two parts. It will focus more on the personal lives of Four Horseman and other members of the mysterious group members instead of their professional robbery. Moreover, Benedict Cumberbatch will be a powerful villain.
While Interpol and FBI agents will continue to investigate all aspects to gather every little detail about the magicians, the horsemen will continue to execute even bigger robberies without worrying anything. Even though, the upcoming will follow more of their personal lives, it will be interesting to see what changed them into a powerful magician.
Probably, the group members have experienced trauma and depression in their lives and their master magician has helped them to get out of their blackhole. It appears like a ray of hope inside the deep woods that has led the four horsemen to live a mysterious life. The Mentalist Season 8 is also another awaited show among police procedural drama fans.
