Isla Fisher - Isla Fisher To Replace Amanda Seyfried In Thriller

Isla Fisher is set to replace Amanda Seyfried in 'Now You See Me'.

The 'Wedding Crashers' actress - who is currently filming Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby' - will reportedly soon begin talks with director Louis Leterrier to appear in the thriller after 'Jennifer's Body' star Amanda dropped out of contention, Variety reports.

The film sees Mark Ruffalo play the leader of an FBI team assigned to track down a gang of magicians known as the Four Horsemen who pull of bank raids during their performances and distribute the proceeds through their audiences.

Isla is in line to play Henley, an illusion builder who helps the criminals pull off their tricks.

Also starring in the film are 'Social Network' actor Jesse Eisenberg as leader of the gang, Morgan Freeman, who plays a former illusionist who has been shunned by other magicians for revealing how their tricks work, and Melanie Laurent, who stars as a federal agent.

Edward Rucourt and Boaz Yakin have written the script for the movie, while Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will produce.

Filming on' Now You See Me' is scheduled to begin in January.
