According to The Hollywood Reporter, the CW Network is moving ahead with a remake/adaptation of "The Illusionist," the big screen version of Steven Milhauser's tale of a magician who sweeps his love off her feet with his conjuring abilities (as it were). The 2006 film starred Edward Norton and Jessica Biel and was part of a (sort of) slew of magician-themed movies during that period: remember Woody Allen's Scoop (2006) with Scarlett Johannsson and Hugh Jackman, and The Prestige (also 2006) and also with Mr. Jackman and Christian Bale.
Says THR, "The CW's version is set in turn-of-the-century New York and follows a renowned illusionist who returns home from a decade in prison to find his wife married to the ruthless crime boss who framed him." I assume the "wife" is really the ex-wife at this point. At any rate, the magician uses his deceptive skills to take revenge on the evil crime boss. Shades of Now You See Me (2013), sort of. By the way, according to IMDB, a sequel to Now You See Me is in pre-production; Jesse Eisenberg and Daniel Radcliffe (did you see that coming?) are listed as part of the cast. Ah, new tricks at the box office!
