Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan confirmed for 'Now You See Me 2'
The Four Horsemen are returning, but it seems they’ll have some company this time around.
Lionsgate has announced that both Daniel Radcliffe and Lizzy Caplan will be officially part of the Now You See Me 2 cast, playing characters named Walter and Lula, respectively. The studio is remaining mum on just what role these characters will play in the story, but they are also joined by series newcomer Jay Chou.
Absent from Lionsgate’s announcement is Isla Fisher, who played horsewoman Henley Reeves in the first film.
The sequel’s plot will still revolve around the Four (now Three?) Horsemen, one year after the first film. The group’s services are enlisted by an enemy who asks them to partake in one of the Horsemen’s most dangerous heists yet—presumably until Now You See Three-D brings the heist action into a new dimension.
Jon M. Chu is directing the film, while Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Michael Caine, and Dave Franco are all set to return. Now You See Me 2 is set to release on June 10, 2016.
