Ariana Greenblatt, Justice Smith, and Dominic Sessa Join 'Now You See Me 3' Cast

Lionsgate's upcoming heist thriller 'Now You See Me 3' has added three new cast members to its ensemble - Ariana Greenblatt, Justice Smith, and Dominic Sessa. The trio will be joining returning stars Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, and Morgan Freeman in undisclosed roles.

The film, which is currently in pre-production, will be directed by Ruben Fleischer from a script written by Eric Warren Singer, Seth Graham-Smith, and Mike Lesslie. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the new installment is expected to once again explore the world of illusionists and the thieving quartet known as the Four Horsemen.

Greenblatt, who recently appeared in the hit film 'Barbie' and will also star in the upcoming 'Borderlands' movie, confirmed her casting on social media. Smith is known for his roles in 'Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves' and 'The Holdovers', while Sessa made his feature film debut last year in Alexander Payne's 'The Holdovers'.

Why this matters: The addition of fresh talent to the popular 'Now You See Me' franchise, which has grossed over $687 million worldwide, is seen as a way to rejuvenate the series and potentially set the stage for future spin-offs and magical adventures. The blend of returning cast members and newcomers has fans eagerly anticipating how the characters will integrate and what new twists will be unveiled.

Jesse Eisenberg, who is reprising his role as illusionist J. Daniel Atlas, has read the script and hopes production will begin within the next six months. "The script celebrates intelligence and is non-violent but exciting," Eisenberg said in an interview with Variety. The film is being overseen by Lionsgate's Meredith Wieck and Erin Jones-Wesley, with Bobby Cohen and Alex Kurtzman of Secret Hideout producing. 'Now You See Me 3' does not yet have a release date.
