Jessie Eisenberg signs on to another heist movie?

The Hollywood Reporter has the details on what the talented young actor is doing with his new-found clout in the business:

Casting for Summit’s magic heist movie is heating up, with Jesse Eisenberg of Social Network fame in early talks to star in Now You See Me, Summit's heist movie being produced by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. Louis Leterrier is directing.

Jake Gyllenhaal, who just starred in the Summit techno-thriller The Source Code, is being courted for another lead role.

See Me, per Summit, pits 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 bank heists during their performances, showering the profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law.
