Caine makes magic in Now You See Me

Sir Michael Caine is the newest name to join Louis Leterrier’s heist movie Now You See Me.

The British star is the latest addition to the star-studded cast, which already includes Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Isla Fisher, Melanie Laurent and Woody Harrelson, reported Moviehole.

Sir Michael – whose last screen outing was in Inception – is said to be playing Arthur Tressler, a magician’s sponsor.

The thriller, written by Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time’s Boaz Yakin and Edward Ricourt, follows an FBI squad who get caught in a game of cat-and-mouse against a super team of great illusionists, who pull off a number of daring bank heists during their performances and offer the profits to their audiences.

Now You See Me is set for a release in cinemas in January 2013.

Sir Michael, who lent his voice to Gnomeo And Juliet and Cars 2, will next be seen in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.
