A bit more info about Mélanie’s new American movie “Now You See Me” has been released as the cast continues to solidify. I’d assumed she would be one of the magicians, but she’s actually going to play one of the agents tracking them down, alongside Mark Ruffalo.
Mark Ruffalo is set to star as 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, respectively.
Fisher is in talks to play Henley, a master technician who builds contraptions to aid in the illusion of the heists.
