USAToday.com have posted a sneak peek look at Now You See Me, including some additional information on the characters, quotes from the cast, and the very first still of Isla in the movie! It’s a short but good read …

Sneak peek: ‘Now You See Me’

Greed has a new, magical enemy: the Four Horsemen.

Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco star as an all-illusionist supergroup using their powers to steal from the rich and give to the poor in the action film Now You See Me (out Jan. 18).

“They are modern-day Robin Hoods,” says director Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk).

Eisenberg, the group’s leader, plays a sleight-of-hand specialist, Harrelson is a hypnotist/mentalist, Franco is a pickpocket/generalist and Fisher stars as the world’s best-looking escapologist.

She is recruited to the group after showing off her skills with an elaborate stage escape from chains and a water tank.

“So many things can go wrong on something like this,” says Fisher, 36. “And I was doing the scene in high heels.”

Her co-stars have learned the skills of their characters’ professions for the just-completed shoot, which took them to locations in New Orleans, New York, Las Vegas and Paris. Franco, for example, mastered the art of card-throwing. “He takes a regular playing card and slings it with such force that he can cut a banana in half,” Leterrier says.

Harrelson trained under Irish hypnotist Keith Barry and tried to mesmerize cast members including Mark Ruffalo, who plays an FBI agent on the Four Horsemen’s trail.

“Woody tries to hypnotize everyone,” Leterrier says during a break in filming. “Mark actually pretended it worked.”

Isla and the Now You See Me cast and crew have now moved to France, and have been spotted shooting scenes in Paris this week! Isla was seen filming a scene with Woody Harrelson and an unknown male actor, and looked like her character might’ve been in disguise, or at least like she was trying to keep a low profile! I’m getting more and more intrigued by this movie the more we hear about it.

Check out these great new set pics in our Gallery:

ET have the first live action look at the filming of Now You See Me, visiting the set and getting to see some of action as well as chatting to the stars, including Isla! There’s some great footage, and it’s really interesting to hear the cast talk about their characters and the plot.

The Social Network star Jesse Eisenberg is working some cinematic magic for his new role in Now You See Me alongside fellow movie magicians Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco — and only ET is on the set!

“Every scene has some interesting component of magic to it, or some kind of reversal of character,” Eisenberg tells ET. “I’m sure it’ll be as fun to watch as it has been to do.”



Coming to theaters in 2013, Now You See Me casts Eisenberg, Harrelson, Fisher and Franco (the 21 Jump Street star and brother of James Franco) as “The Four Horsemen,” a quartet of the world’s greatest illusionists who pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances, showering the stolen profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of FBI Agent Mark Ruffalo and Interpol agent Melanie Laurent.

“We are kind of modern-day Robin Hoods,” explains Fisher. “We’re getting back at corporate greed and we’re distributing the wealth and we’re essentially kind of anarchists, good guys, good magicians, righting the wrongs of the world.”

Michael Caine also stars as a wealthy benefactor, and Morgan Freeman plays a former illusionist and now world-famous magic debunker determined to take down the Horsemen.

Also starring Common and Michael Kelly, the film is directed by Louis Letterrier (Clash of the Titans, The Incredible Hulk).

Yesterday I added a new-old batch of photos from the set of Now You See Me, that were taken the day before the first batch we had a few weeks ago. Isla is seen walking around on set with Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson, wearing a blue blouse and dark jeans. Big thanks to my friend Lindsey for sending these to us!

I’ve also been super busy the last few days, researching Isla’s upcoming projects to write our In Development career page. I’ve now completed it as accurately and in depth as I can, providing you with all the latest information on the projects Isla is probably/hopefully still developing, including Groupies, Cookie Queen, and Life Coach. I just want to see more and more of Miss Fisher’s unique brand of funny on screen, so I hope some of these projects get a big greenlight soon.

Filming for Now You See Me has now moved to Las Vegas, and Isla and her co-stars were spotted filming scenes on Monday afternoon. This week they’ve shot at the Aria hotel, including their Sky Villa suites, casino floor and valet areas, at the iconic signs at the Neon Museum and Boneyard on Monday, and the Golden Gate hotel on Tuesday. They won’t be filming at the MGM Grand though – during the filming in New Orleans earlier this year, sets were built to stand in for the famous hotel and casino, where a fight scene was set. David Copperfield is reportedly on set in Las Vegas this week. The movie also has scenes in Paris and New York.

I’ve added a couple of photos from the sighting to our Gallery, and will be on the lookout for more.

Contact Music have a short video with footage of the cast arriving on set, and Ace Showbiz and SunOfHollywood have a few more photos from this weeks filming.

Following much research, I have now completed Career section pages for Isla’s Pantomime/Stage and Presenting work! I’ve spent quite a long time looking for information on this work, and have managed to put together some fairly in depth information for you, which I hope you will find interesting (I know I did!). Whilst researching, I also came across a couple of flyers for Isla’s pantomime production of Cinderella, which I have now added to the Gallery. There’s also a new-old 1990’s press interview, and a few new Trivia bits.

I just have to put together the Screenwriting, In Development and Filmography pages now…

I now finally have coverage from Isla’s guest appearance on Bored To Death for you. She appeared on two episodes last year during it’s third season run, playing a character named Rose Hiney. Rose was a detective/Jonathan’s girlfriend/… Jonathan’s half-sister. She was her usual funny self and had some great one-liners. Plus it was an interesting change of pace seeing her in a television series. She also had great chemistry with lead star Jason Schwartzman who plays Jonathan. Unfortunately the series was cancelled in December, so any plans for Isla to return are now obviously not going to happen … which is a shame, as I really wanted to see what they did with her storyline!

As for the show-related updates, I’ve added stills and HD screencaptures from both of the episodes Isla appeared in. I’ve also written our filmography information page for the project, containing all the information I can find on Isla’s part, including exclusively written episode synopses, and a bunch of quotes I transcribed whilst watching. I’ll add clips from her episodes when I start completing the Video section.

The filming for Now You See Me has now moved from New Orleans to New York City, and last week we finally got our first look at Isla on the set! Photos have surfaced of her filming on the Lower East Side last week with her co-stars Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson. Isla’s character is called Henley, a master illusion builder who helps the gang pull off their tricks. Photos from this sighting can be seen in our Gallery, and further down this post is a short video with footage of Isla and Jesse waiting to shoot a scene. It looks like Isla is having fun on this set (as always)!

The Daily Mail and OK Magazine also have some good pics from the set, which we unfortunately can’t post here. And you can see some great fan-taken photos here and here.
