Dave Franco Joins Team Of Thieves In 'Now You See Me'
fb.indiewire.com Back in February, "The Incredible Hulk" and "Clash of the Titans" director Louis Leterrier came aboard Summit Entertainment's intriguing heist picture "Now You See Me." Written by Boaz Yakin and Edward Ricourt, and produced by "Star Trek" and "Transformers" writing/producing powerhouse team Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the project has since assembled a star-studded ensemble which includes Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Isla Fisher, Melanie Laurent and Woody Harrelson.

Now You See Me Synopsis and Credits

The Four Horsemen, a magic super-group led by the charismatic ATLAS (Jesse Eisenberg), perform a pair of high-tech magic shows, first astonishing audiences by robbing a bank on another continent, and then exposing a white-collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members’ bank accounts. FBI Special Agent DYLAN (Mark Ruffalo) is determined to make the magicians pay for their crimes—and to stop them before they pull off what promises to be an even more audacious heist. But he’s forced to partner with ALMA (Melanie Laurent), an Interpol detective about whom he is instantly suspicious. Out of desperation he turns to THADDEUS (Morgan Freeman), a famed magic debunker, who claims the bank heist was accomplished using disguises and video trickery. One thing Dylan and Alma agree on is that the Horsemen must have an outside point person, and that finding him (or her) is key to ending the magicians’ crime spree. Could it be Thaddeus? Or Alma? Or could it really be…magic? As pressure mounts and the world awaits the Horsemen’s spectacular final trick, Dylan and Alma race to find an answer. But it soon becomes painfully clear that staying one step ahead of these masters of illusion is beyond the skills of any one man—or woman.

Bruce Lee needs no introduction, but no one should mistaken the Martial Arts screen legend for our own brucelee. For some unknown reason, he despises Chinese spareribs.
