Now You See Me / Chemical Brothers

The trend continues. They last scored Joe Wright's Hanna, to stellar results, now they're moving on to the "magical" next. The Playlist is reporting that The Chemical Brothers will be scoring Louis Leterrier's upcoming illusionist/magician heist movie Now You See Me, which is currently filming. It's not due out until March 2013 from Summit, but they say that "sources close to the film have confirmed" the British duo Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons, who go under name The Chemical Brothers, are working on this movie next. Which actually sounds great already, considering it's about a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists.

We've been covering updates on Now You See Me for a while, originally written by Edward Ricourt and Boaz Yakin. The film is shooting now in New Orleans, and Louis Leterrier (Transporter 1 & 2, Unleashed, The Incredible Hulk, Clash of the Titans) is directing. The cast is being lead by Jesse Eisenberg, with Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, Isla Fisher, Melanie Laurent, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Common. We posted some teaser art for this last year, but have yet to see more, since it's currently in the middle of production. I'm pretty damn excited to hear what the Chemical Brothers can bring musically to this, and if their score will intertwine with the action the way it did in Hanna - if so, this will be awesome.

  • This project already sounded really interesting, even more so now.  Is this based on anything?

    Sounds....ok? Only time I've been impressed with them scoring is back with Fight Club....which feels like 50 years ago.
