Mark Ruffalo and Amanda Seyfried look likely to join the cast of Louis Leterrier’s Now You See Me, Variety reports.
Already set to star Jesse Eisenberg and Melanie Laurent, Now You See Me pits a crack FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against a super team of the world’s greatest illusionists, who pull off a series of daring bank heists during their performances, showering the profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law.
Ruffalo will play the head FBI Agent with Seyfried an expert at building the criminal team’s “magical” devices.
The film, written by Boaz Yakin and Edward Ricourt, will be produced by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci via their Kurtzman Orci Paper Products production banner. Yakin will executive produce along with Kurtzman Orci Paper Products’ Bobby Cohen.
