While it’s not quite a sequel, a Zombieland reunion of sorts is in the works. Woody Harrelson is currently in negotiations to star in the magician heist pic Now You See Me alongside Jesse Eisenberg. Louis Leterrier is directing the flick which centers on an illusionist troupe that pulls off bank heists in the middle of their bewildering performances, then gives the loot to the audience. The cast includes Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, Isla Fischer and Melanie Laurent. Variety reports that Harrelson will play “a mentalist and hypnotist known for his Jedi-style mind tricks.” An incident overseas forces him to flee to the U.S. where he joins the magician group known as the Four Horseman. As if the premise and existing cast weren’t enough to entice me, Harrelson’s addition guarantees my ticket sold. Hit the jump for the casting news of Diego Klattenhoff in Pacific Rim.
Additionally, Diego Klattenhoff (Showtime’s new series Homeland) has joined the cast of Guillermo del Toro’s next directorial project Pacific Rim. The epic monster movie centers on aliens and human-manned robots fighting, and with del Toro at the helm we can rest assured that it’ll be pretty damn crazy. The director has already sworn to depict “the finest fucking monsters ever committed to screen,” so there’s that. Variety reported the casting and stated that the nature of Klattenhoff’s role is unknown at the moment, but he’s expected to be featured in the opening scene. Opening July 12th, 2013, the film stars Charlie Hunnam, Willem Dafoe, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Rob Kazinsky, Max Martini, and Clifton Collins Jr.
