Louis Leterrier (“The Incredible Hulk,” “Clash of the Titans”) has confirmed to The Playlist that he will direct “Now You See Me” for Summit Entertainment.
Boaz Yakin and Edward Ricourt penned the script about a crack FBI squad in a game of cat-and-mouse against a group of the world’s greatest illusionists. These tricksters pull off a series of daring bank heists during their performances and shower the profits on to their audiences.
Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are set to produce. Leterrier was previously linked to the James Cameron-produced 3D remake of “Fantastic Voyage”, a job that ultimately went to Shawn Levy.
