If you found yourself liking ‘Den of Thieves‘, which was released to theaters just last month, then you’ll be pleased to know that the gang is set to return for a sequel. Although the film didn’t do well with critics, it did perform far better than expected at the box-office, which has led to the announcement of a sequel.
Deadline reports that Gerard Butler and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson are both set to return, as is director Christian Gudegast, who will also be penning the ‘Den of Thieves’ sequel from an original idea. It’s also expected that O’Shea Jackson Jr. will be back as well as the actor is currently in negotiations with the studio.
The sequel will reportedly find “Big Nick (Butler) on the hunt in the streets of Europe closing in on Donnie (Jackson Jr.) who is embroiled in the dangerous world of diamond thieves and the infamous Panther mafia, as they plot a massive heist of the world’s biggest diamond exchange.”
