According to the Independent, the magical caper film Now You See Me is getting not one but two sequels, both to be directed by Jon M. Chu. Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine are all returning for the films. Lizzy Caplan is replacing Isla Fisher. The original film, released in 2013, was a box office hit, but received rather lukewarm reviews (I liked it, though!)
Recap: four magicians, played by Mr. Eisenberg, Mr. Harrrelson, Mr. Franco, and Ms. Fisher, are hired to carry out a number of amazing feats, including an amazing bank robbery. An FBI agent (Mr. Ruffalo) tries to crack the case with the assistance of an agent from INTERPOL (Melanie Laurent) and a magician who reveals other magicians' tricks (Mr. Freeman). The ending reveals the true reason for the magicians' motives and the real intent behind the agent's pursuit of the conjurors.
Now You See Me 2 is due in theaters June 10, 2016.
