It looks like Gerard Butler has found himself another franchise.

The film's main star Gerard Butler is expected to return for Den of Thieves 2.

Diamond Films Productions is financing and STX will distribute the follow-up to Den of Thieves, which opened in January and has grossed $57 million worldwide to date. Den of Thieves opened in the United Kingdom last weekend where it became the first of STX's films to gross more than a million pounds.

Gudegast is penning the screenplay from his own original idea, which will find Butler's crude and thoroughly unlikable "Big" Nick O'Brien pursuing Jackson Jr.'s Donnie in Europe, where the latter gets mixed up with diamond thieves, a massive gem heist and the infamous Panther mafia. The movie only cost $30 million to produce.

Den of Thieves takes a lot of inspiration from crime thrillers like Heat and The Town. Still, money talks and Den of Thieves is making money.

The film is set to bring back the cast of the first, including Butler, Curtis Jackson, Tucker Tooley, O'Shea Jackson Jr, Mark Canton, and Alan Siegel. According to Deadline's report, a combination of global pre-sales and tax incentives led to 70 percent of the production budget being covered before Den of Thieves even hit theaters. The hip-hop veteran has announced his recently released Den of Thieves movie is a go for a much-needed sequel. But, it's hard to imagine they would press forward without him, as he's poised to be a central figure in this new movie. Both Curtis and the PS I Love You actor will also be among the movie's producers through their respective production companies, G-Unit Films & Television Inc. and G-BASE.
