Lionsgate has begun developing “Now You See Me 3,” a year before it releases “Now You See Me 2? on June 10, 2016, as part of its strategy to focus on franchises.

Feltheimer said production has wrapped on “Now You See Me 2.” Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine are reprising their roles while Lizzy Caplan has replaced Isla Fisher.

Feltheimer said Lionsgate believes that the movie will top the $350 million grossed by the original comedy caper in 2013.

Jon M. Chu is directing the sequel from a script by Ed Solomon and Pete Chiarelli. Producers are Alex Kurtzman and Bobby Cohen.

Lionsgate has seen strong performances from its “Twilight,” “Hunger Games” and “Divergent” franchises and recently announced the plans for a sequel to Keanu Reeves’ “John Wick.”

More ‘Arrested Development’ Coming to Netflix in Mid-2016, Says Producer Brian Grazer

Production will start early next year, he told the “Adam Carolla Show” Tuesday

There will definitely be more “Arrested Development,” and sooner rather than later, according to Brian Grazer.

The super-producer shared the news on Tuesday’s “Adam Carolla Show” podcast. Grazer said he spoke with Fox Studios on Monday, and everyone is on board. As a matter of fact, Grazer told Carolla that he broke the news to Mitch Hurwitz from the popular podcast’s greenroom.

“Netflix is determined to do more episodes, so we’re going to do more episodes,” he told Carolla. Production is slated to begin after Jan. 1.

Fans can expect new episodes “four months after that,” Grazer added.

The producer previously revealed that 17 episodes were in the works for the show that Netflix revived in 2013.

“Arrested Development” originally ran for three seasons on Fox from 2003-06.

Carolla tends to record his podcasts the evening before they post.

CANNES: Liam Hemsworth Joins Kate Winslet on ‘The Dressmaker’

Liam Hemsworth (“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”), Isla Fisher (“The Great Gatsby”) and Elizabeth Debicki (“The Great Gatsby”) are set to join Kate Winslet and Judy Davis (“Husbands & Wives”) in Jocelyn Moorhouse’s “The Dressmaker.”

Embankment is selling international territories and co-represents the U.S. with CAA.

Principal photography starts in Australia in October.

Winslet plays an avenging angel who returns home to the remote country town from which she fled as a child after being accused of murder, to make amends with her eccentric mother. Although ostracized, as an exponent of the most stunning 1950s haute couture inspired by Madame Vionnet and Balenciaga, she liberates and empowers the town’s women with her quick wit and beautiful clothing. She unexpectedly finds love and ultimately exacts sweet revenge on those who wronged her.

Moorhouse (“Proof,” “How to Make an American Quilt”), who directs her script adaptation of the eponymous novel by Rosalie Ham, said: “Kate Winslet is perfect for Tilly. She’s beautiful, intelligent, and deeply mysterious on screen. Judy Davis is amongst the great contemporary actresses and she will bring powerful wit and charm to the role of Molly. Liam Hemsworth is a laid back, genuine charmer who’s also tall, dark and movie-star handsome. He’ll create a character for the audience to fall in love with.”

Working with Moorhouse will be director of photography Don McAlpine (“Moulin Rouge!”), costume designer Tim Chappel (“The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert”), production designer Roger Ford (“Chronicles of Narnia”) and editor Jill Bilcock (“Moulin Rouge!”).

“The Dressmaker” is produced by Sue Maslin (“Japanese Story”) through Film Art Media, and the film has been financed with the assistance of Screen Australia, Fulcrum Media Finance, White Hot Productions, Film Victoria, Soundfirm and developed with the assistance of Screen NSW.

The film is also financed by Ingenious Senior Film Fund, represented by Gavin Poolman and Michael Shyjka, and will be distributed by Universal Pictures in its home territory.

The Hollywood Reporter report that Isla is being considered for a role in upcoming comedy-drama This Is Where I Leave You, alongside Tina Fey and Jason Bateman:

Tina Fey Joining Jason Bateman in ‘This Is Where I Leave You’

Tina Fey continues to shape her post-30 Rock acting slate, entering negotiations to star alongside Jason Bateman in This Is Where I Leave You, Warner Bros.’ adaptation of the book by Jonathan Tropper.

Shawn Levy is directing the movie and producing along with Paula Weinstein.

Tropper wrote the script, which centers on a man (Bateman) whose father dies and tasks his dysfunctional family comprised of four grown siblings with one last request: to spend seven days following the funeral together under the same roof for first time in a decade.

If a deal comes together, Fey will play Bateman’s older sister, a woman who is married and whose first love now has brain damage.

The project, which is eyeing a production start in June in New York, also is casting other female roles: Bateman read actresses Ari Graynor, Isla Fisher, Zoe Saldana and Mary Elizabeth Winstead for the part of the romantic lead, but no decision has been made. Kathryn Hahn is looking likely to play Bateman’s sister-in-law.

Fey is expected to segue into the role after she wraps shooting a leading role in Disney’s The Muppets…Again!, the sequel to The Muppets, which is currently shooting in Europe.

Fey is repped by WME, 3 Arts Entertainment, Ziffren Brittenham.

Recent reports have been announcing Jessica Chastain as joining the cast of Iron Man 3, but apparently Isla was also considered for the part. While Chastain was the studios original choice, at one point it seemed she may not be able to take it due to scheduling conflicts, which is when Marvel started talks with other actresses, including Isla. Chastain’s schedule conflicts have now been resolved, and she is able to take the role. Read the original article from Deadline below, and I’ve also added this information to our Rumoured Roles page.

I’m told that Jessica Chastain is back in the mix to play a starring role opposite Robert Downey Jr in Iron Man 3. The role is a sexy scientist every bit as smart as Tony Stark. Chastain, who last year starred in The Tree of Life, The Help, Take Shelter and The Debt, was originally offered the role but it looked like she was going to be preoccupied making a movie with Joel Edgerton and Samantha Morton. I think that movie was The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. She also had scheduling issues involving the Kathryn Bigelow-directed Sony Pictures film about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden.

Marvel then began lining up meetings with actresses like Diane Kruger, Gemma Arterton and Isla Fisher. But all that has changed as Chastain’s movie has been pushed, the Bin Laden scheduling was worked out, and it looks like she’s going to get the role after all. She will join Downey, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, and potentially Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley in the third installment of the Iron Man trilogy, this one directed by Shane Black. Chastain is repped by CAA and Mosaic.
