Den of Thieves, when it came out back in 2018, quickly took my heart away with its amazing action and well thought out plot. I really liked the way the movie ebbed and flowed, and it was a great pleasure to see it in action, with all of the added humor and the hilarity of it. It was a great watch and the same was the opinion of most critics and viewers at the time. Given the success of the first movie, almost immediately following its release, Den of Thieves 2 was given the green light, and the movie was approved for production. But given the way things have been the past two years, there has been little to no progress on the new movie. But now we have some news about Den of Thieves 2, direct from the source. So keep reading to find out what it is about.

Den of Thieves 2: About The Movie
Den of Thieves, at its core, is a movie that revolves around crime and theft. It is a story that revolves around a group of elite deputies at a police department who have to find a way to stop the robbers at large from robbing the Federal Reserve Bank. In that sense, it is a movie that revolves around heists and the like. And it is really fun too! You will certainly enjoy the cops and robbers act in its entirety, and it has a vibe to it unlike any other heist movie from yesteryears. Added to that is the cultural representation of the United States as a crime haven. It all comes together in a drama that will have you by the edge of your seats, waiting to see what happens next.
And now, with Den of Thieves 2, we are expecting much more of the same action and mind games that the robbers play on the cops, and in a much more gruesome manner. The brutality of the first movie was what set it apart from the rest, and lent it a vibe that could hardly be matched at the time. So we would expect Den of Thieves 2 to expand on what made the first movie so good and to do it better than ever before. But then again, all of the creative decisions lie with the producers and the directors, so fan speculation hardly makes a difference in the way the film is going to be. However, now we do have some official statements on the same, and they sound promising.

What The Team Had To Say About Den of Thieves 2
After the announcement of Den of Thieves back when the first movie had come out, we were left in the dark for a long time about the status of the second movie. But now, Gerard Butler, the producer behind the first movie, has come forward and talked about what Den of Thieves 2 might have in store for us. Beginning off with the fact that the new movie was going to be more glamorous than the first one, he expanded a bit upon it.
“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. 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,” Butler said in his statement, revealing a lot about the location and the premise of the movie. Promising a more fun and sexy journey, he is certainly raising a lot of expectations. But how it is going to transpire is not known yet, and these words might even backfire on the producer.

Den of Thieves 2: About The Cast
Den of Thieves had quite a stellar cast that was full of big names and a lot of talent. The first movie saw Gerard Butler himself starring in the movie as Big Nick, the detective from the police going up against Ray Merrimen and his gang of thieves pulling off the heist. The film also starred Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson, Pablo Schreiber, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Evan Jones, Dawn Olivieri, Mo McRae and Max Holloway. These are all big names in the industry, and gave quite an amazing performance in the first movie. Given the way things ended, and the fact that the second movie is directly going to follow the events of the first movie, we would expect that the movie is going to retain pretty much the same cast for the second movie.
Butler also stated that Jackson is going to be given a more central role in the second movie, as it was revealed towards the end that he was the actual mastermind behind the plan in the first movie.

Den of Thieves 2: Release Date
Talking about the release date of the movie, that is something that is still completely unknown to us given the infantile stage of the movie. The movie hasn’t even begun shooting yet, and as Butler said, is going to begin shooting in early 2022. So that leaves us with a lot of time before we might be able to watch Den of Thieves 2. By all means, we would estimate that it is until at least 2023 before Den of Thieves 2 hits the screens. Please note that all this is conjecture and things might not turn out this way. So take it with a grain of salt.

Den of Thieves 2: Outlook
It is a great time for Den of Thieves 2 to come out right now, given the boom that heist movies are currently experiencing. And it is probably going to do a lot better than the first movie, which only did modestly well at the theaters. All of these things lead me to think that the next movie is going to be on a new level. And I really hope the movie lives up to all expectations.
