Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan Join ‘Now You See Me 2’

Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan and Taiwanese star Jay Chou have come on board Lionsgate’s “Now You See Me 2.”

Lionsgate has dated “Now You See Me 2″ for June 10, 2016 — three years and two weeks after the original caper comedy was released in 2013. Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine will reprise their roles.

Last year’s “Now You See Me” was a surprise success with over $350 million in worldwide box office. Jon M. Chu is directing the sequel — set a year after the original — from a script by Ed Solomon and Pete Chiarelli. Producers are Bobby Cohen, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.

Radcliffe is repped by UTA and ARG in the UK and attorney Fred Toczek.  Caplan is repped by WME, Mosaic and Jackoway, Tyerman, Werthheimer, Austen, Mandelbaum & Morris.  Chou is repped by JVR Music.
