Variety reports that Isla Fisher is in talks to join the cast of Now You See Me, a heist film centering on the exploits of a crew of bank-robbing magicians. Jesse Eisenberg is slated to play the leader of the crew, dubbed the Four Horseman, while Mark Ruffalo will portray an FBI agent tasked with bringing them to justice. According to Variety, Fisher’s role is that of “a master technician who builds contraptions to aid in the illusion of the heists.” Other actors attached to the film include Morgan Freeman and Melanie Laurent. Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans, The Incredible Hulk) is directing.
Fisher is currently down in Australia, where she’s playing Myrtle Wilson in Baz Luhrmann’s star-studded, 3D adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby.
