From the sounds of it, the cast for Louis Letterier’s next film – magician heist pic Now You See Me – is getting better and better with each announcement. Because now Mark Ruffalo and Amanda Seyfried are set to join the cast.
The film already boasts Jesse Eisenberg and Melanie Laurent in the tale of a crack squad of FBI agents engaged in a cat-and-mouse game with a group of the world’s top illusionists, who pull off daring bank raids during their shows. They somehow manage to evade the law enforcers and usually shower their audiences with the ill-gotten gains.
Ruffalo, who is hard at work getting angry a lot on The Avengers, is in talks for the main FBI agent role, while Seyfried, currently filming The Big Wedding with Robert De Niro, is set to play a genius technician who builds the devices that the magicians use in their performances.
With Boaz Yakin and Edward Ricourt having scribbled the script, Leterrier plans to kick off shooting as soon as he can assemble the cast.
