One of the more surprising box office hits of last year was the magician adventure pic Now You See Me. The film had a solid opening weekend, but it continued to do swell business in the ensuing weeks, going on to gross $351.7 million worldwide against a budget of $75 million. As with most successful studio films where everyone doesn’t die at the end, Summit Entertainment began to move forward on a prospective sequel. Following the official Now You See Me 2 announcement, Summit expressed its desire to begin filming in 2014, and while director Louis Leterrier was expected to return, he’s currently busy gearing up to helm the action-comedy Grimsby. As such, Summit is on the hunt for a new director for the magician sequel, and G.I. Joe: Retaliation helmer Jon M. Chu is reportedly at the top of their list. More after the jump.
