We didn’t know for sure if Daniel Radcliffe was going to play a “Harry Potter-esque” role in the sequel of “Now You See Me” until Michael Caine mentioned that the star will be his son in the film.
According to Hey U Guys, Caine who played the insurance magnate Arthur Tressler said:
There’s a sequel to Now You See Me and we’re shooting in London. I shoot in December, the whole of December in London, and my son is Harry Potter. I thought it’d be funny, me and Daniel Radcliffe as father and son.
Lionsgate and Dan himself have not confirmed the report yet but we assume the official announcement will come sooner or later.
Set to be released on June 10, 2016, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, and Dave Franco are expected to reprise their roles as the quarter of magicians aka “The Four Horsemen”. Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine will return to the film as well and the sequel will be directed by Jon M. Chu.
