Daniel Radcliffe Joins The Cast Of Now You See Me 2

November 6th, 2014 by Andrew McCarroll Comments

Daniel Radcliffe will be reaching for his wand again(phrasing), as the Harry Potter star is set to appear in the sequel to 2013’s Now You See Me. The surprisingly good original centres around a group of illusionists called the Four Horsemen, who use their magic shows as a front to pull off a string of bank heists.

Michael Caine, Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher and Woody Harrelson will all return with serial spoiler Caine letting slip that Radcliffe will be playing his son in the movie.

Slated for release in June 2016, Summit Entertainment have already released a premise for the sequel: “One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their mind-bending spectacles, the Four Horsemen resurface in Now You See Me 2 only to find themselves face to face with a new enemy who enlists them to pull off their most dangerous heist yet.”

Andrew McCarroll never quite built on the dizzying career heights that he hit at 6 years old, when as a member of the “Ghostbusters” he would charge his neighbours to remove any unwanted spectres. Now retired from slaying spooks, he spends his time obsessing over superheroes (especially Batman) and devouring shows like Dexter, Game of Thrones and Archer in a manner that would make Galactus proud.
