Justice Smith, Dominic Sessa Join ‘Now You See Me 3’

April 16, 20242 Mins Read

Justice Smith, last seen in Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, and The Holdovers breakout Dominic Sessa are ready to take over the magic stage.

The duo have closed deals to join Barbie actress Ariana Greenblatt in Now You See Me 3, Lionsgate’s latest installment of its heist-with-magicians thrillers.

The trio are the newcomers to the caper, with original cast members Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco and Morgan Freeman expected to reprise their roles as thieving illusionists.

Plot details are being kept up a sleeve but the new feature will once again delve into the world of the illusionists and the bickering and sneaky quartet known as the Four Horsemen while introducing audiences to a new generation of magicians.

Ruben Fleischer will be sitting in the director’s chair when cameras roll. Eric Warren Singer, Seth Grahame-Smith and Mike Lesslie wrote the script while Bobby Cohen and Alex Kurtzman produce.

Meredith Wieck and Erin Jones-Wesley are overseeing the project for Lionsgate. 

Smith, who last year was part of the fun ensemble of Dungeons & Dragons, is currently in theatres with Focus’ The American Society of Magical Negroes and has the buzzy horror movie and festival circuit darling I Saw the TV Glow opening wide from A24 on May 3. He is repped by WME and Sloane Offer.

Sessa made his feature film debut starring in Alexander Payne’s coming-of-age film The Holdovers opposite Paul Giamatti and Da’Vine Joy Randolph. For his performance in the film, Sessa was nominated for a BAFTA Award for best supporting actor and won best breakthrough performance at the 2024 Critics Choice Awards and Film Independent Spirit Awards. Sessa has been on a roll since awards season: he is currently shooting true-life indie drama Tow opposite Rose Byrne and then moves to Oh. What. Fun., a holiday comedy from Amazaon MGM that stars opposite Michelle Pfeiffer and Chloe Grace Moretz, among others. He is repped by CAA, Untitled Entertainment, and Hansen Jacobson.
