Daniel Radcliffe’s Role in ‘Now You See Me 2’ Revealed Along With the Movie’s Plot

Of all the puns an actor goes through in his acting career, Daniel Radcliffe is indeed set to join the on-stage magician movie sequel of “Now You See Me” with Lizzy Caplan. Furthermore, Lionsgate has also officially revealed the movie’s plot. Read on to know more about this update.

Daniel Radcliffe first played one of the most sensational wizard ever lived in the Harry Potter world. Now, he has been jumping from one movie project to another, showing how he can truly act and distance himself from the wizarding visage. However, it would appear that magic is not entirely that far off his future with the way he is now officially involved in Lionsgate’s sequel to the on-stage magical entertainment movie, “Now You See Me 2,” together with “Masters of Sex” star Lizzy Caplan.


Based on the feature posted by Screen Rant, the plot of the movie will be showing off more extreme stints that backup the resurfacing of the Four Horsemen.

Along with the release of the plot, Lionsgate also backed up the plot with role of the “Harry Potter” series actor as he plays the role of Walter, the son of the multimillion dollar business man Arthur Tressler played by Michael Cain in the first movie. It would appear that the actor will be reprising his role along with the leads Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Woody Harrelson, Morgan Freeman and Mark Ruffalo.

Meanwhile, We Got This Covered also added the information regarding Caplan’s role in the film in light of her replacing Isla Fisher’s character Henley Reeves. The actress announced that she wouldn’t be reprising her role, but Caplan wouldn’t really be taking over the role entirely, rather she will be added as a new one as Lula. Another actor joining in the entire ensemble will be the Taiwanese actor Jay Chou, who will play the role of Li.

“Now You See Me 2” is penned by Pete Chiarelli and Ed Solomon under the direction of Jon M. Chu. It is slated to arrive in theaters on June 10, 2016. There goes our “Now You See Me 2” update.
