We have some behind-the-scenes footage from the set of Now You See Me. Louis Letterier directed the magic thriller, which stars Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco in the leads.
Eisenberg, Harrelson, Fisher and Franco play "The Four Horsemen, a quartet of the world's greatest illusionists who pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances, showering the stolen profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of FBI Agent Mark Ruffalo and Interpol agent Melanie Laurent.
Michael Caine also stars as a wealthy benefactor, and Morgan Freeman plays a former illusionist and now world-famous magic debunker determined to take down the Horsemen. Common and Michael Kelly round out the cast.
Here is what Eisenberg had to say about the film:
"Every scene has some interesting component of magic to it, or some kind of reversal of character. I'm sure it'll be as fun to watch as it has been to do."
Fisher revealed the following about the characters:
"We are kind of modern-day Robin Hoods. We're getting back at corporate greed and we're distributing the wealth and we're essentially kind of anarchists, good guys, good magicians, righting the wrongs of the world."

I have been interested in seeing this film since it was first announced. I love heist movies and the concept of magic being used sounds awesome. The cast is also pretty amazing, so I am going to be seeing this in theaters.
Do you plan on seeing this in theaters in 2013?
