“Den of Thieves” hit theaters in early 2018 and delivered a bit of a pretty satisfying heist flick a bit. It may not have been “Heat”, but it was compelling and most importantly made it good enough financially to justify a sequel. Although the development has apparently been a bit slow, “Den of Thieves 2” is really on its way, and we’re here to get you to capture everything we know so far about Big Nick and Donnie Wilson’s continued adventures.
Here’s what we currently know about “Thieves 2. Den”.
Many of the cast and crews return
Shortly after “Den of Thieves” was released in January 2018, it was revealed that a sequel was coming together. At the time, it looked like most of the core members would return for follow-up. This includes Gerard Butler, Tucker Tooley, Mark Canton, Alan Siegel, 50 Cent and O’Shea Jackson Jr. Director Christian Gudegast is also ready to return. So the core group that made the first film, whatever it was, will be back in the saddle.
Filming will start soon
Gerard Butler, who returns as Big Nick, recently discussed a bit about “Den of Thieves 2.” Specifically, the actor revealed that they were going to shoot it in early 2022, while also describing it as sexy.
“We have to shoot early next year. We are European-bound, we are still looking for Donnie, who is now in the diamond district of Marseille. I am going to hunt him, but with other intentions than you might imagine. So we’ll be in Marseille, the Alps and London – it’s definitely a more glamorous trip than the last, and probably a more enjoyable, sexy trip. “
What will the sequel be about?
When the film was first announced, Deadline revealed a short plot synopsis for “Den of Thieves 2”, which describes a diamond ball and a European setting. It reads as follows:
[Den of Thieves 2] finds Big Nick (Butler) on a hunt in the streets of Europe closes in on Donnie (Jackson Jr.), who is involved in the dangerous world of diamond thieves and the infamous Panther mafia as they plan a massive uplift of the world’s biggest diamond booty.
In April 2018, Gudegast also discussed this a bit and repeated what this synopsis reveals, in addition to teasing some surprises along the way:
“It’s all going to happen in Europe. And it’s going to be about Big Nick in search of Donnie, who’s involved in a diamond ball, and he’s teamed up with the former Pink Panther mafia, and it’s about, that Nick is chasing him along with … Nick is also going to be chased by another group, I will not reveal right now. It’s going to be a few different kinds of twist in this one. It will hopefully be very surprising. “
When do we see it?
At the time of writing, “Den of Thieves 2” does not have a scheduled release date. But if filming kicks off in early 2022, we can at best expect to see it by the end of 2022. Although the beginning of 2023 seems to be the safest bid at this point.
