NOW YOU SEE ME 2 is an upcoming 2016 caper thriller sequel directed by Jon M. Chu (Step Up 2: The Streets, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Jem and the Holograms). It features returning cast members Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and newcomers Lizzy Caplan, Jay Chou (周杰伦) and Daniel Radcliffe.
The Four Horsemen (Eisenberg, Harrelson, Franco, Caplan) return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights and taking them around the globe. One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, the illusionists resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than WALTER MABRY (Radcliffe), a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all.
