After a surprise turnover at the box office back in 2013, the Four Horsemen are set to return for another bout of might and magic with the release of Now You See Me: The Second Act, and director Jon. M Chu recently showcased our very first look at the ensemble cast for the upcoming sequel.
With Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Jesse Eisenberg and Lizzy Caplan — in lieu of Isla Fisher — on board as the aforementioned tricksters, the film will also herald the return of Mark Ruffalo and Michael Caine, who will be joined by newcomer Daniel Radcliffe who is set to play his son, Walter Tressler. As for story, The Second Act will pick up around one year after the events of the original film, pitting the Horsemen against a new threat as they make a move to pull of their “most dangerous heist yet.”
Not exactly reinventing the wheel, mind you. But still, there was enough likeable moments buried within Now You See Me to have us feeling cautiously optimistic about the series’ next outing.
Besides, as the photo above reveals, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice star Jesse Eisenberg will likely be sporting a very Lex Luthor-esque hairstyle in parts of the caper sequel. The remainder of the cast will be rounded out by Morgan Freeman, Jay Chou and Sanaa Lathan.
Now You See Me: The Second Act will have you second guessing just about everything when it whisks into theaters on June 10, 2016.
One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their mind-bending spectacles, the Four Horsemen resurface in NOW YOU SEE ME 2 only to find themselves face to face with a new enemy who enlists them to pull off their most dangerous heist yet.
