Now You See Me 2 director Jon M Chu drops by Most Craved to talk about movies, magic and more!
With Now You See Me 2 opening in theaters today, Most Craved is thrilled to welcome to the studio director Jon M Chu, a man whose work spans from films in the Step Up franchise to G.I. Joe: Retaliation. He’s in the studio today to chat with regular hosts Jenna Busch of Legion of Leia, William Bibbiani of CraveOnline and our own Silas Lesnick. In the player above, you can check out Jon M Chu’s thoughts on the film and even get a tease of where the franchise might be headed next!
In Jon M Chu’s Now You See Me 2, the Four Horsemen return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights and taking them around the globe. One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, the illusionists resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than Walter Mabry (Daniel Radcliffe), a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all.
With a screenplay by Ed Solomon and Pete Chiarelli, Now You See Me 2 stars Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Lizzy Caplan, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman. Lizzy Caplan is stepping in for Isla Fisher and Jay Chou and Daniel Radcliffe also star.
