As part of the TUDUM event, Netflix has released a first trailer for the third part of the acclaimed Heist series “Lupin”. In it we see again “Jurassic World-Stars Omar Sy as Assane Diop, a gifted thief who stylizes himself as a 21st-century Arsene Lupin. The character was originally based on the crime novels by Maurice Leblancs and played a key role in shaping the image of the gentleman crook.
In the finale of the second part of “Lupin”, Assane finally takes revenge on Hubert Pellegrini (Hervé Pierre). We then see Pelligrini being taken away in the squad car after admitting to some of his serious crimes. Diop, who is wanted by the authorities for some of his crimes, leaves Paris but swears that one day he will return to the French capital.
Because of this, Diop is also forced to live far away from his wife and son, leading to problems that cause him more and more grief, leading the master thief to return to Paris again. Here he proposes to his loved ones that they leave France. But the ghosts of the past are just waiting to bring Diop to justice (including an unexpected return, they say).
Omar Sy also told industry magazine EntertainmentWeekly already hinted that the cast could grow even bigger one day: “In the books, Lupine has many accomplices. […] I think maybe one day it will be even more interesting to have a big crew around Lupin with a lot of people. The thing is that as a mastermind you can’t do everything on your own, you need people. Bringing people together is also one of his skills.”
