Now you see me

An FBI agent and an Interpol detective track a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances and reward their audiences with the money.

 The Chemical Brothers scoring a Louis Leterrier movie about magicians who redistribute the wealth from their heists? The French director is certainly finding ways to trafficking in the fun, borderline absurd type of entertainment he learned while making movies with Luc Besson. There are many bigger names on screen and behind the scenes here, and one imagines the budget will be on the higher end of the scale as the worldwide marketing kicks in. Like it or not, the key here is going to be in the marketing; get people excited by the potential awesomeness of Morgan Freeman, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, and others matching wits and the winter box office returns could be mighty.
