Isla Fisher Joins Now You See Me

Though Louis Leterrier has been gathering a solid cast for his new film, heist drama Now You See Me, it looks like he’s lost one actress but gained another: Variety reports that Amanda Seyfried has dropped out of contention for a role in the film, leading the way clear for Isla Fisher to enter talks.

The plot finds Mark Ruffalo as the leader of an FBI team dedicated to tracking down the Four Horseman, a gang made up of some of the world’s greatest magicians who pull off bank raids during their performances and then spread the wealth among their audiences. Jesse Eisenberg is the arrogant leader of the Horsemen and now Fisher will play Henley, a master illusion builder who helps the criminals pull off their tricks.

Morgan Freeman will be a former illusionist who has been shunned by his peers for revealing how their tricks work, while Melanie Laurent is on as a federal agent.

Fisher’s currently busy working on Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby in Australia and will also crop up in Bachelorette and ‘toon adventure Rise of the Guardians.

Leterrier kicks off filming Now You See Me in January.
