Isla Fisher in Talks for Now You See Me

Movie News

 

Isla Fisher sure is continuing to rack up those movie roles. Already starring in Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” as Myrtle Wilson, Fisher is now in talks to star in “Now You See Me” with Mark Ruffalo and Jesse Eisenberg.

According to Variety, Ruffalo is playing the leader of a team of FBI agents who are investigating the Four Horsemen, a squad of the world’s greatest illusionists who pull off a series of daring bank heists during their performances, then shower the profits on their auds. Jesse Eisenberg will play the arrogant yet brilliant leader of the Four Horsemen, while Morgan Freeman and Melanie Laurent co-star as an ex-magician and a federal agent.

Fisher meanwhile is in talks to play Henley, a master technician who builds contraptions to aid in the illusion of the heists. Amanda Seyfried had been in negotiations for the role but her deal never closed.

Louis Leterrier is directing from a script by Edward Ricourt (“Year 12″) and Boaz Yakin.

Fisher’s currently filming “Bachelorette” with Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan and James Marsden. In that film, which almost sounds like “Bridesmaids”, three friends are asked to be bridesmaids at a wedding of a woman they used to ridicule back in high school.
