Morgan Freeman is in talks to join Now You See Me. The action film that sounds like Point Break with magicians follows a team of illusionists who rob banks during their performances and then distribute the money to the audience. All the while, the FBI is trying to take them down. Here’s a pointer for the FBI, focus on the magic shows that take place next to banks.
If he does join, Freeman will play Thaddeus, the scourge of the magic world who is hated for revealing other magician’s tricks. Jesse Eisenberg, Amanda Seyfried, Mark Ruffalo, and Melanie Laurent are already signed on for the Louis Leterrier-directed film. Could this be Freeman’s attempt to stay in a movie crazier than Wanted? Because I really don’t think it’s possible for a movie to be crazier than Wanted. (Variety)
