Den Of Thieves, final month’s heist movie from first-time director Christian Gudegast, is precisely the type of film that appears destined to be forgotten. It has a reasonably generic identify, it stars Gerard Butler, it’s spinoff of higher heist motion pictures, and but its surprisingly entertaining performances and intelligent plot have helped make it right into a shock hit. In reality, Deadline is reporting that STX and Diamond Movie Productions have already given the inexperienced mild to Den Of Thieves 2, with Gudegast returning to direct and writing the script “from an authentic concept.” 50 Cent will even return to supply alongside Butler.
We even have an early synopsis for the sequel, with Deadline saying it’ll comply with Butler’s character as soon as once more as he chases authentic villain O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Ice Dice’s son) by means of “the streets of Europe”—a payoff to the top of the primary film. That’s a fairly simple setup for a sequel, so hopefully Den Of Thieves 2 can preserve the unique’s surprisingly good tempo and lay the groundwork for the inevitable Den Of Thieves three through which the nice guys should group up with the dangerous guys with the intention to cease a good badder man. Then it’s only a matter of time earlier than Dwayne Johnson indicators on, and we’ll have one other inescapable motion behemoth on our arms.
