7 November 2014 3:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

As ridiculous as it was, I really enjoyed Louis Leterrier‘s Now You See Me. The idea of a heist film with magic won me over. Now You See Me 2 is preparing to move into production, and Lionsgate has officially announced the cast and offered up a plot summary.

The movie will reunite the ensemble cast from the first film with three of the four horseman returning, including Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco, alongside Mark RuffaloMorgan Freeman, and Michael Caine. Isla Fisher was in the first movie, but her name wasn't on the press release we received. The screenplay was written by Pete Chiarelli and Ed Solomon. Here are the story details:

Fact: These Celebrities Are Also Fiction Writers

6 November 2014 2:30 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Every once in a while, a star veers away from the world of Hollywood to try their hand at fiction writing, and some celebrities have become well-received authors in their own right. Tom Hanks, for instance, recently penned a short story for The New Yorker, and earlier this week, it was announced that he's also publishing a short-story collection. Meanwhile, actress Bella Thorne is releasing her debut novel this month, and a Ya novel by the Jenner sisters hit shelves over the Summer. If you're looking for a new book to dive into, take a look at these titles written by celebrities, including picks from stars Isla Fisher, Ethan Hawke, and Britney Spears. »

The plot of Now You See Me 2 is being kept pretty much under wraps, but the press release does state that “one year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their mind-bending spectacles, the Four Horsemen resurface only to find themselves face to face with a new enemy who enlists them to pull off their most dangerous heist yet.”

Lionsgate Aims for the Fences at American Film Market

5 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As Lionsgate morphs into a major studio, longtime foreign sales expert Patrick Wachsberger is unveiling a trio of high-concept titles at the American Film Market — “Deepwater Horizon,” starring Mark Wahlberg; Emma Watson-Miles Teller musical “La La Land”; and “Now You See Me 2.”

Though its reputation has been built on being the home of “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games” franchises, Lionsgate is using Afm to demonstrate just how far it’s come from its days as a mini-major.

Production starts later this month in London on the sequel. Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan and Taiwanese star Jay Chou came on board this week. Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine will reprise their roles.

“We are doing big movies,” said Wachsberger, co-chairman of Lionsgate’s motion picture group. “And we’re able to let people know when you’re releasing them »

Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan confirmed for 'Now You See Me 2'

4 November 2014 11:09 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The Four Horsemen are returning, but it seems they'll have some company this time around. Lionsgate has announced that both Daniel Radcliffe and Lizzy Caplan will be officially part of the Now You See Me 2 cast, playing characters named Walter and Lula, respectively. The studio is remaining mum on just what role these characters will play in the story, but they are also joined by series newcomer Jay Chou.

Horsemen, one year after the first film. »

Full Cast List For Now You See Me 2 Confirms Daniel Radcliffe And Lizzy Caplan

4 November 2014 10:43 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Over the past few months, a handful of notable actors and directors have flirted with Lionsgate/Summit’s magic heist sequel Now You See Me 2. Stars such as Lizzy Caplan, Jay Chou and Daniel Radcliffe have been linked to the project — though Michael Caine outed the involvement of the latter actor — while G.I. Joe: Retaliation helmer Jon M. Chu has been tipped to direct.

Today, Lionsgate has officially unveiled the full cast list for the follow-up to 2013’s surprise hit, and it turns out that all of the aforementioned talents will indeed have a role in the anticipated sequel.

We know from Caine’s aforementioned interview that Radcliffe has boarded the project to play the son to his Arthur Tressler’s character, while Jay Chou has signed on to star as Li — a role that remains overly vague at this stage.

As for Caplan, the Masters of Sex actress »

Daniel Radcliffe Confirmed For Now You See Me 2

4 November 2014 8:45 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Though Michael Caine let the word slip last month, the idea that Daniel Radcliffe might appear in Now You See Me 2 has  been unconfirmed until now. Lionsgate has officially announced that Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan and Jay Chou are aboard the sequel.Returning for another go-around after last year’s surprise hit are Caine, Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco. While Isla Fisher isn’t mentioned, the press release does say that illusionist team the Four Horsemen reunite, so it may yet be that she returns despite currently being pregnant. Unless the group is just Eisenberg, Harrelson and Franco, and is renamed the Three Horsemen, which really doesn’t work as well. The Three Amigos? Nah, it’s been done.The plot finds the gang together to face a new enemy (probably Radcliffe since he’s playing the son of Caine's Arthur Tressler, Walter) after »

Casting: Jake Gyllenhaal Makes It 'Snow' With Antoine Fuqua; Isla Fisher Meets 'The Jonses' & More

3 November 2014 2:06 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We celebrated Jake Gyllenhaal's recent spate of success by highlighting five roles that reignited his career. For all the moves he's made towards interesting projects, with fascinating directors, we didn't think Antoine Fuqua would be high on his list of filmmakers to reteam with. We were wrong. Fresh from working with together on the boxing pic "Southpaw," the pair will reunite for "The Man Who Made It Snow." Based on the autobiography by Max Mermelstein, the story follows "the only American who was in the inner circle of the Colombian cartels in the go-go 1980s." Promising we suppose, but then again, this is the director who made the ridiculous and tone-deaf "The Equalizer," so who knows. No word yet on when it might shoot, but Brent Tabor wrote the script. [THR] Isla Fisher is joining Jon Hamm and Zach Galifianakis in Greg Mottola's "Keeping Up With The Jonses." The »
