From "Mean Girls" to "Masters of Sex," Lizzy Caplan is everywhere we want to be and in everything we want to see. That might include next year's sequel to the surprise hit "Now You See Me," which the actress is currently in talks for.
Isla Fisher was one of the few the lone women holding down the fort in 2013's "Now You See Me," which co-starred Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Dave Franco, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Mélanie Laurent. Fisher, who appeared in the acerbic 2012 comedy "Bachelorette" with Caplan, had to bow out of the sequel because she's pregnant. Daniel Radcliffe will also appear in "Now You See Me 2" as the son of Michael Caine's character's Arthur Tressler.

Last year’s magician thriller, Now You See Me, didn’t exactly receive universal critical acclaim. While it was certainly an enjoyable romp with a couple of twists chucked in, it failed to revive the genre after the 2006 double-whammy of The Prestige and The Illusionist. Still, putting its critical reception aside, it raked in a sufficient haul at the box office to warrant a sequel that we’re not sure is entirely needed.
Nevertheless, it’s been a while since we’ve heard official word on any new casting for Now You See Me 2, but today’s scoop from The Wrap has now transformed the second outing into a far more enticing affair. The outlet reports that Cloverfield‘s Lizzy Caplan is currently deep in negotiations to snag the female lead. The biggest hurdle surrounding her involvement is her role on Showtime’s Masters Of Sex, for which the »

"There's a sequel to Now You See Me and we're shooting in London. I shoot in December, the whole of December in London, and my son is Harry Potter. I thought it'd be funny, me and Daniel Radcliffe as father and son."
That's pretty cool that these two talented actors will be playing father and son. I'm sure they'll make a great on-screen team. I liked the first movie, even though it was utterly ridiculous, I thought it was entertaining. I'm also just a sucker for magic, heist movies, and Isla Fisher.
