Gerard Butler is building a nice portfolio of action credits, having just starred in 2016’s London Has Fallen, 2017’s Geostorm, and now 2018’s Den of Thieves . Butler takes on the role of Nick Flanagan, the team leader of an elite unit of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.

Tucker Tooley, Mark Canton, Alan Siegel and Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, are all slated to return for Den of Thieves 2 alongside Gerard Butler . O'Shea Jackson, Jr. is also expected to be back , but he's currently in negotiations for the sequel and hasn't yet signed on officially.

Christian is also writing the script from an original idea, after he penned the first instalment with the help of Paul Scheuring.

According to Deadline, 'Den of Thieves 2' will see 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.

Tucker and Mark are on board to produce the sequel with Gerard and Alan's production company G-BASE, whilst 50 Cent - real name Curtis Jackson - will produce through his production company G-Unit Film & Television, Inc.

'Den of Thieves' over-performed at the box office after its release last month.

The movie follows Gerard's Big Nick, the hard drinking leader of the Regulators, an elite unit of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Big Nick is hellbent on taking down the Outlaws, a gang of ex-military men lead by Ray Merrimen (Pablo Schreiber) who use their expertise and tactical skills to evade the law.

O'Brien, Merrimen and their crews soon find themselves on a direct collision course as the criminals hatch an elaborate plan for a seemingly impossible heist.
