Woody Harrelson joins Mark Ruffalo and Jesse Eisenberg for Now You See Me
Posted by:Zack Bruce
I really like Louis Leterrier as a director. He got a pretty bad wrap after CLASH OF THE TITANS but I think he’s learning from his mistakes and trying to take on better project. Everyone gets a dud every now and again. You’ve just gotta be able to pick yourself up and put your talents toward better things.
He’s doing exactly that by directing NOW YOU SEE ME. The film has a very impressive cast with Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Isla Fisher and Melanie Laurent already on board. Now another great actor is getting in on the action– Woody Harrelson. The story follows a crack FBI squad in a game of cat-and-mouse against a super team of the world’s greatest illusionists, who pull off a series of daring bank heists during their performances and shower the profits onto their audiences. Sounds pretty awesome, right?
Harrelson will play Merritt Osbourne, a former mentalist and hypnotist to the Queen Of England who is now slumming it in Las Vegas when he teams up with illusionist team The Four Horsemen to pull a few jobs. He apparently also knows some Jedi stuff as well.
