It was rumored for weeks that Daniel Radcliffe would be in Now You See Me 2. Now, we know that where there is smoke, there is definitely fire as the former Harry Potter star has been “officially” added to the cast of Now You See Me 2.
And Radcliffe is not alone. He is joined in the ranks of new to the cast by Lizzy Caplan, (Masters of Sex, the upcoming The Interview) and Jay Chou (Taiwanese mega star).
Radcliffe is set to play a character named Walter (we think he’s Michael Caine’s son), Caplan will be Lula (who is stepping in for a had-to-exit-because-she’s pregnant Isla Fisher) and Chou will portray a mysterious character named Li.
Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Caine all reprise their roles from the surprise hit. Directing this time out will be Jon M. Chu (GI Joe: Retaliation).
