ESCAPE PLAN 2, Chinese NOW YOU SEE ME Spinoff In The Works At Lionsgate
Reports are now coming out that plans are under way for a Chinese spin-off of the hit heist franchise, Now You See Me in the wake of its sequel which opened in June. The film is one of two titles in a new co-production deal between the film's studio, Lionsgate, and Beijing-based Leomus Pictures.
"We're working closely with Lionsgate on the story," Leomus Pictures CEO Jie Qiu tells THR. "And a Hollywood writer will be involved to make sure the spinoff is aligned with the Now You See Me franchise and has the same level of quality."
