Woody Harrelson Joins Now You See Me


Woody Harrelson is in negotiations to join the cast of the upcoming Louis Leterrier film, Now You See Me, says Variety.

Already set to star Jesse Eisenberg, Melanie Laurent, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher and Morgan Freeman, 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.

Harrelson would play Merritt Osbourne, a mentalist who joins the team of criminals. He can next be seen in Rampart and, next year, The Hunger Games.

Now You See Me, 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.
