Alakazam! Louis Leterrier apparently wants to show audiences his skills at magic because, according to Playlist, the director as signed on to direct Summit Entertainment’s high-concept heist film Now You See Me.
Sounding like The Prestige meets Heat, the film follows an FBI team investigating a team of illusionists they believe perform bank heists during their act and then delivers the profits to their audience. Boaz Yakin and Edward Ricourt penned the script. Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci produce, with Yakin and Bobby Chen as executive producers.
Leterrier, who directed Clash of the Titans, The Incredible Hulk and The Transporter, had been circling the 3D remake of Fantastic Voyage. However, that gig ended up going to Shawn Levy.
