Plot sounds cool and if everyone joins it is a pretty nice cast.Variety reveals that Jesse Eisenberg and Jake Gyllenhaal are in early stages of negotiations to join the high concept “Now You See Me.” First announced near the beginning of the year, the story written by Boaz Yakin (”Prince Of Persia: Sands Of Time,” “Fresh”) and Edward Ricourt, follows a crack FBI squad in a game of cat-and-mouse against a super-team of the world’s greatest illusionists, who pull off a series of daring bank heists during their performances and showers the profits on to their audiences.

Scheduling will be an issue for both Eisenberg and Gyllenhaal who will need to make sure their calendars have space before they sign on the dotted line. Eisenberg heads off to Italy this summer to shoot “Bop Decameron” with Woody Allen, and he’s also eyeing Noah Baumbach‘s “While We’re Young.” Jake Gyllenhaal is currently shooting David Ayer‘s “End Of Watch” but his window seems a bit more open right now.
