A while back I first heard that Louis Leterrier’s next project was going to be a heist movie about magicians who robbed banks. It was an interesting enough concept to pique my interest, but I still had a bad taste left in my mouth after Clash of the Titans. I guess enough time must have passed, because hearing about the project again, I don’t find much of that ill will still remaining. I think I’m kind of looking forward to this next movie. It just might be a new day for Leterrier and me.

Or maybe I’m just happy that the new news about the film is that Melanie Laurent is in negotiations to play the female lead. I do so crush on that little pixie-like lady. You know who she is, right? The girl from Inglorious Basterds and Beginners? Yeah, she’s fun. Jake Gyllenhaal was also pondering the idea of joining the cast for a while, but seems to have passed for one reason or another. But that doesn’t break my heart much, because Jesse Eisenberg is still set to star. After his recent string of awesome films I’d say that I’ve developed a little bit of a man-crush on the Eisenberg, so if Leterrier manages to score Laurent he will be 2 for 2 with me. Eisenberg, Laurent, in a movie about the FBI tracking down bank robber magicians? Yeah, I’m down with that. Clash of the Titans who? [Variety]
