A sequel to the 2018 film Den of Thieves has been in the works for some time now, but according to Gerard Butler, the project is almost ready to officially get underway.
In a recent interview with Unilad, Butler was asked about the second film, and for fans who have been waiting for news on the sequel, Butler has great news.
“We’re supposed to shoot early next year. We’re Europe-bound, we’re still on the hunt for Donnie who’s now on the diamond district in Marseilles,” Butler said. “I go over to hunt him down, but with different intentions than you might imagine. So we’re gonna be in Marseilles, the Alps, and London – it’s definitely a more glamorous journey than the last one, and probably a more fun, sexy journey.”
A Los Angeles crime action film, Den of Thieves follows the intersecting and often personally connected lives of an elite unit of the LA County Sheriff’s Dept. and the state’s most successful bank robbery crew as the outlaws plan a seemingly impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank of downtown Los Angeles.
