Isla Fisher is in talks to star in new magician heist thriller Now You See Me.
The Wedding Crashers star will join Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo and Melanie Laurent in the film about The Four Horsemen, a team of the world's greatest illusionists who pull off daring bank heists during their performances and shower their audience with the profits.
Isla is in negotiations to play Henley, a master technician who builds the contraptions needed to create the illusions, Variety reports.
Amanda Seyfried had previously been linked to the role.
Jesse will play the arrogant but genius leader of the Four Horsemen, Mark will play the head of the FBI team investigating the heists, Morgan will play a former magician and Melanie one of the federal agents.
Louis Leterrier is directing from a script by Edward Ricourt and Boaz Yakin.
Isla is currently in Australia filming Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, in which she plays Myrtle Wilson, a married woman who has an affair with Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton).
