A year after the release of "Now You See Me", we are not getting more information on the sequel "Now You See Me 2" officially titled "Now You See Me: Now You Don't"! Release date, returning cast members and plot updates have surfaced online, including the confirmed new cast members Daniel Radcliffe and Lizzy Caplan!

Soon after the success of "Now You See Me" in 2013, Lionsgate confirmed the sequel  "Now You See Me 2" officially titled "Now You See Me: Now You Don't" with a production that begins in 2014. It wasn't until late this year that "Now You See Me 2" release date has been announced, and it's not as far as everyone anticipated.

"Now You See Me 2" officially titled "Now You See Me: Now You Don't" release date is set on June 10, 2016.

More than "Now You See Me 2"/"Now You See Me: Now You Don't" release date, we now have updates on cast and plot news as well.

Joining returning cast members Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Michael Cane, and Morgan Freeman are Lizzy Caplan, Daniel Radcliffe and Jay Chou ("Green Hornet") as part of the cast.

Early in October, news that "True Blood" actor Lizzy Caplan was in talks with the production team in taking on one of the lead roles and cast in "Now You See Me 2"/"Now You See Me: Now You Don't", replacing Isla Fisher who is unavailable for "Now You See Me 2" officially titled "Now You See Me: Now You Don't" due to pregnancy. Now, Caplan is officially part of the sequel-whether she becomes one of the four horsemen remains to be seen in the plot.

Daniel Radcliff is also officially announced to be another new cast member of the "Now You See Me 2"/"Now You See Me: Now You Don't" cast, as Michael Cane's son, Walter Tressler. No news on how Daniel Radcliff will return as the billionaire's offspring, although his character is speculated to go all out on the classic revenge mode for his father in the plot.

According to Inside Movies, "Now You See Me 2" officially titled "Now You See Me: Now You Don't" plot will focus on the Horsemen and their new heist that is set to be their most dangerous lifts yet.

Stay tuned for updates on "Now You See Me 2" officially titled "Now You See Me: Now You Don't".
