He’s currently developing the story…
Speaking to ComingSoon, director Louis Leterrier revealed that he will be returning for the sequel to Now You See Me. Below are some highlights:
Leterrier on a deleted scene from the first movie that potentially sets up a sequel: "We had a scene that we kept and when Lionsgate and Summit said, 'Yeah, let's do a sequel,' I said, 'Okay let's put it on the DVD and do the longer cut.' It's after the credits, but I was very conscious of not jinxing it. This summer I saw a couple of movies where they had 'sequelitis' and you totally jinx it, but this was only for the DVD and only for the Blu-ray."
Leterrier on returning for the sequel: "I'm currently, not writing, but we're coming up with the story, the plot, the everything, the twist and the new characters and everything. It was always at least a diptych, two movies, to tell one long story, so yeah, I'm very much involved in it. I don't know if it's going to be my next movie. I know we want to do it pretty fast but I might be able to do another movie in between."
