Louis Leterrier may no longer return…
Variety reports that director Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) is the likely candidate to direct the upcoming sequel to Now You See Me 2. Previously, it was reported that the first film's director Louis Leterrier would return as director, but that appears to have changed.
The first film followed a group of illusionists who stage a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders.
Chu is currently filming Jem and the Holograms for Paramount Pictures.
