Every so often you come across a premise for a film that is so great you spend from now until release date praying it doesn’t screw up. As a big magic fan the upcoming ‘Now you see me’ is one of those films.

The film centers around FBI unit tasked with bringing to justice the elusive Four Horsemen, who  are comprised of the world’s greatest illusionists who use magic and illusion to perform daring bank heists. Come on how cool does that sound?

Morgan Freeman joins the cast as Thaddeus, once a magician himself now turned skeptic as he makes a career who of exposing how hi fellow magician perform their tricks. Also in the cast are Mark Ruffalo, Jessie Eisenberg, Melanie Laurent  and Amanda Seyfried.

Maybe if this is a success they’re reboot ‘The Magician‘ although not sure how it would work without Bill Bixby… I used to love that show.
